What type of staghorn is this? Superbum???

Hello gang,
Question... is this auction a Superbum as the lady says it is, or is it another variety such as bifercatum?

I found it at "the bidding place" as item number 4371045979
I just can't believe the one up for auction is a Superbum... as I bought one they said it was a Superbum, but now it's looking more and more like a Grande... but it certainly does NOT look anything like either one of the auction's photos.

Can you help tell me what it is for sure as it really is a great price for a Superbum, and I'd like to bid on it.

doesn't look like a superbum.
I've sold a good many ferns on ebay....
with the exception of a few people, the fern sellers are often ignorant bafoons.
if you want a superbum contact a reputable place, doug eckels comes to mind... and he sells on ebay.

Thank you for your kind and quick answer. She (the seller) finally admitted that it was a Bifurcatum (My spelling stinks).
