I thought the same. Perhaps my last e-mail (with his phone number)
helped. Since he is shipping via USPS (which only requires the
GREEN CN-22 to be filled in - which is the alternate form that
I specifically mentioned might be used instead), he has now
agreed to fill in that form. I am still not sure what he will use for
the value of the item, but it SHOULD be the auction price of
$ US 11.50 - which makes a big difference to me when a
carrier like UPS charges to clear a shipment through customs.

For now I will NOT contact eBay.

Thank you for your suggestion.

Sincerely yours,

Jerome Fine
