  • The object was in worse condition than it seemed like in the description and the photo was taken so that it didn't look damaged

    As already written to mr Hendrix before this feedback which I fully disagree:

    "I was honest in the description and the pictures are clearly indicating the status. (italian description: Alcune mancanze nella parte superiore, fermaglio sul retro mancante). The packaging was accurate and robust and the bidding started at 1 euro, no reserve. "
