Re: The Shoe Polish I did. When I see a rare item as a Buy it Now, it is just sort of a knee-jerk reflex. For the most part, I am worried about it falling into the hands of the infidel. At least this way it is in the control of the faithful. Of course, I do not have a 100% paulian bottle. You are the only collector who does. Naturally, I wanted it for my own collection. This frees up a "bottle only" one for our Comic Book Coming Out Prop Attack.
I find the listing interesting, Shinda instead of Shinola
I can't account for that. It would keep buyers from finding his listing and the letter "d" is nowhere near the letters "ol" on a keyboard. There is nothing on the label or bottle that results in the "ol" looking like a "d". He apparently had some odd notion of how to reduce the number of letters in his listing, but didn't realize he was sabotaging himself.
Re: The Shoe Polish I just checked the spell checker in Word and another spell checker program. Neither of them accepted Shinola, but neither of them suggested "Shinda". Sukshinder Shinda (born Sukshinder Singh) (Punjabi: ਸੁਖਸ਼ਿੰਦਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਭੁਲਰ) is a bhangra record producer and singer–songwriter. Shinda Finn is an international spy featured on a XXXenophile CCG card. There is also the god Shinda that is the fertility god of the Ainu people.
Maybe he thinks Shinola is a dirty word:
Maybe it is a signal from one sleeper agent to another: when you see an eBay listing with Shinola replaced by Shinda, it is time to strike.
