Now it's back. Clearly, the original buyer wasn't happy after getting physical possession of their prize. Were they upset about chair legs being passed off as "hand carved stakes"? The apparent flame-thrower that scorched the entire interior of the box without leaving a mark on the exterior? The obvious letter opener blade being used as a dagger? The upholstery tacks nailed into everything?
Who can say?
What we can see is that the sponsor of this auction is, quite intentionally, making sure there aren't any detailed pictures of the interior. Their disclaimer has also expanded considerably:

WE ADVISE THAT YOU, OR SOMEONE ON YOUR BEHALF, INSPECT ANY ITEM(S) AND COME TO YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS BEFORE BIDDING. ALL SALES ARE FINAL. PLEASE SEE TERMS CONDITIONS.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with trying to sell a vampire hunting kit. They are, quite literally, works of art. What's dishonest and unethical is trying to pass them off as actual period artifacts instead of evocative assemblage pieces. Leaving yourself wiggle room to fleece the unsuspecting and gullible is equally odious.
