    Hello, I gave you all the information of the records by the pictures of the labels. Apparently you checked this after the auction instead of before. This is not wise.
    Nevertheless I am prepared to give you a discount of €15,- as soon as I receive the money from Catawiki and you send me your bankaccount and name and address (or Paypal data.

    There were extensive pictures in the ad, also detailed labels. Everything could be derived from the information on the labels. Buyer made a mistake and was apparently to greedy. I put the issue forward to Catawiki, but buyer did not want to wait for the opinion of the Catawiki expert.
