Description
Yes, this is the Ark of the Covenent, used to contain the 10 commandments of God. A simple stone box, this was found in the back of my garage among a number of odds and ends left over from my days in the middle east. This rare find is considered a fairly important religious artifact to many of the worlds religions and , as such, I expect brisk bidding on the artifact. Qualified buyers only, Nazis and evil People, don't even think it, this item has a history of flash burning of the eyeballs of the unpure and sending them down to hell (a product flaw, and one you must sign a release for should you be the winning bidder). I tried to take a photo, but they mostly just came out blindingly white,. Buyer pays shipping and insurance of item! Respond now and I'll throw in the Alabaster arrow of improbabability.

Binding contract.
     Placing a bid is a binding contract in many states. Do not bid unless you intend to buy this item at the amount of your bid.

Proxy bidding for all bids
     Please bid the maximum amount you are willing to pay for this item. Your maximum amount will be kept secret; eBay will bid on your behalf as necessary by increasing your bid by the current bid increment up until your maximum is reached. This saves you the trouble of having to keep track of the auction as it proceeds and prevents you from being outbid at the last minute unless your spending limit is exceeded. (See an example of proxy bidding). Also, in case of a tie for high bidder, earlier bids take precedence. And, keep in mind that you cannot reduce your maximum bid at a later date. Unless otherwise noted, bids are in U.S. dollars.
     If you have bid on this item before, note that your new bid must be greater than your previous bid.
