  • The parcel packing was bent, so the map inside became also slightly damage - it's bent quite hard in several places. So now I will have spent some resources for restoration :(

    In de beschrijving had moeten staan dat de kaart bespoten is met een vernisachtige laag, wat hem minder aantrekkelijk maakt. Als ik dat geweten had had ik hem niet gekocht.
