I missed at least one picture the first time through - I was in a hurry, and never went back. I apologize for not being more thorough, though I did say I did not like it.
In addition to all prior comments, the profiling of the front of the wood is incorrect - very subtly so, but wrong nonetheless. And, I think I see the splice, there is a color change at right angle to the grain, about 1/16" ahead of the shoulder.
That stock is a total FAKE, period.
The seller is something more than coy, he is a flat-out liar. I hope whoever bought the stock returns it and files a MAJOR complaint with eBay.
