If you see a message that reads:
Posted Dec. 31, 1969
And it says you are verified, you can rest assured that you are not verified yet.

It's a bug that we know about. I know, it's confusing, but you can assume that if your listing says "verified in 1969" that it isn't actually verified. Unfortunately it also means that you won't be able to take any action on it at this time.
There has been more and more discussion about this bug across Google Groups recently, so I thought I mention it here.
