Money Matters - Informing seller they are wrong about product description
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question:
Answer: I don't think there is any problem here. Anyone who would be interested in buying an old pair of tefillin would realise, as you did, that the tefillin were not made of wood, so I don't think he lost any bidders as a result of this misinformation.

As far as the seller not knowing the true nature of the object he was selling, in this case it would only be relevant if as a result of his ignorance of the product, he was being underpaid. It's almost impossible to put a price on an old pair of tefillin - it would very much depend on who wrote them, the condition that they were in etc. If he offered them for auction and no-one offered more than you, it's probably a fair indication of the price it's worth.
