    There are actually a bunch of people doing this, not just for the Ancestral Lens of Riches, but also with the other ancestral items too. I’ve also noticed that they say, “Sell [color of ancestral item]” instead of the name of the item itself. For example, “Sell green ances” and “Sell yellow”. Bumping this so people would be more knowledgeable.

            Also, double check when you're selling through Vending Machines. You don't want to be that guy that sold hundreds of ATMs for 3 per WL, true story that I saw first-hand.
