Wayne, I feel your pain. I cant post a photo either.
The boneshaker sold for $1225.00

At least the Seller has now posted a revision on the listing suggesting that it's not a period item from the 1880's

Look at E Bay heading as noted in the title.
Hopefully, someone can post the link and a photo.
Could this possibly be a period piece? While, there are signs that show age and construction techniques from the era, there are other indications that were not developed yet. Mainly, electric welding. Note the crank and axle welds. The welds at the "loop" spring in the rear suspension.
My intuition tells me that this is from someone's imagination and made in Thailand or India as a "art" piece.

Looking at a 1892 Union catalog,  The Union # 10 is a close match. But, there are some differences at the hinged head and the rear stays.
Phil Saunders purchased a Union at Copake 2 years ago. His is similar to yours, not sure of the year.
The name plate is on the down tube below the hinged head.
Maybe you could contact him

Well, the Columbia Standard has found a new home. It now has gone full circle back to a wheelmen that used it as a child. Glad to see that it will be used for many more years to come

Glenn Eames posted on the Wheelmen Facebook website about his 1879 Columbia Standard.
At Copake, I was fortunate enough to acquire # 1044 of the 1050 Columbia Standards manufactured in 1879. The wheel size is 44".
Glenn is inquiring if any of the 1878 bikes exist.
How many 1879 Standards are out there?

I have exactly what you need for your family.

The lucky buyer got taken. It was a scam.
The Chinese Ebayer used an ended listing and resold the same item.
I'm sure the new buyer will never receive the seat
