Legally, no. eBay's policy on selling alcohol states that the contents must be incidental, and the value is derived from the collectability of the bottle itself. However, this gives you no protection under the law.

Just because eBay does something doesn't make it legal or illegal. Try explaining your innocence for shipping alcohol over state lines without the proper licenses to a Federal investigator whose job is to prosecute someone, anyone, for breaking his law, or his boss's interpretation of his law.

Hello Ed,
Thank you for your efforts with the auction site. I am going to make a determined effort to both buy and sell on the site. I still feel as a collector that a trade is the optimal transaction however and would presumably carry less risk, if in fact there is a risk.

Don't get me wrong, I am all in favor of consulting adults doing what consenting adults do but as someone with a federal license to import and distribute alcohol I can't afford to break the laws or enable others to do so.
