Got this via email, hopefully someone can help out.
we are trying to find out who may have unknowingly bought recently off ebay a 1963 BARRY BENNETT 9'7ft Timber 'D' fin Mal~Triple redwood stringer!
We know who stole it and thats in the hands of the police, but we are hoping to track down the board as my 'ol man is cut. He bought it off the original owner who hadn't ridden it since '74. This board was his pride and joy as I'm sure you all can imagine. Below I have put the original link to ebay where it was sold from. We know the board went to NSW, and readvertised again on ebay. Not sure if the deal went through or where it ended up.

I know it's a long shot, but not sure the police will put that much energy in finding it for us, so thought I'd hit the forums of the surfing community and see what turns up.
If you can help we would be eternally in your debt. Feel really sorry for the poor guys who have bought it. Also the shop the board was sold from has been ripped off by the little pr*ck too, they are totally innocent and have helped us out heaps.
