|I don't believe this was accidental or an oversight|

Look... some facts. I suspect this was deliberate.
He "added" the photo, using "add to description". If he wanted to change the photo, he could have just deleted it, instead of saying, "disregard bottom photo." You can edit and delete all you want, until someone bids.
Now, if someone bid, preventing him from deleting the photo, he THEN would not have been able to change the original auction description. But he had that "disclaimer" in the original description. He could not have added the disclaimer, had someone already bid.
So, it appears that he 1) had the disclaimer before he added the photo OR 2) he just added the disclaimer and left the photo in.
Finally, you can check his feedback. He has more than 50 less than positive, including 27 negatives.
I'm finding that there are more and more that are simply using deceptive selling tactics on eBay trying to leverage off of the higher value calculators that collectors sell.
He wound up selling a $50 for $150. I suspect that if you go back and read all his feedback, you will find other negatives because of deception.
