This made me laugh,
“Excellent condition! Original German made LGB quality!!”

Clear as day, TAIWAN! Just a very cheap speaker, you could buy 3 top quality Visaton (real German) for the same price...
Yep, misleading and overpriced.
<Pedant mode on> It may well be an original LGB fitment. Also according to data sheets at least some Visaton speakers, including one of my favourites, are Chinese, see "country of origin" bottom left of this one.

It says in the text it's rare, so you're not likely to see it!:giggle::giggle:

Ah! I see (or don't) what you mean. Obviously the (would-be) seller as the ability to say what he doesn't mean!;)

Possibly a better description? Punctuation makes all the difference according to the "Grammar Nazi" on the local radio station.

It still think it really needs rephrasing - "Speaker from LGB MOGUL (20190 Series). Rare chance to aquire this original part."

I've made the mistake of buying an LGB part from this "lgbdude"; his descriptions are always ambiguous/misleading to some degree, and most definitely overpriced. I guess he relies on someone needing a part that is now rare to find. Avoid if possible!

The dude looks like he takes rolling stock apart to get parts on the Bay. The dude is definitely overpriced, but does have parts no one else had.
