  • Máscara bien empaquetada. Muy contento con la pieza y la comunicación con el vendedor.
    Las Aduanas en España tardan cobran mucho. Pero esto no refleja en el vendedor ni la pieza. Muy feliz!

    Le colis est bien arrivé, très bien emballé. Merci bien. J'ai été un peu surpris par les frais retenus par la poste belge pour les opérations de douanes : 30 euros de frais pour 14 euros de taxe !

    Vista dal vivo la qualità della maschera è piuttosto modesta rispetto al prezzo pagato

    So I get neutral feedback because you don't like your 40 euro mask? Meantime, did I not do my job properly? Funny people
  • Thanks. Well packed, well received. A nice piece, overall a good transaction.

    Description mensongère. Pas d'usure ni patine d'usage. Frais d'expédition prohibitifs pour la qualité de l'objet qui m'apparait jusqu'à preuve du contraire comme une mauvaise copie - Travail grossier

  • Our mask arrived quickly and in good condition but without a certificate or statement that it came from the Hallet collection. And because it not full size, we are not sure how it was used.

    user-ccfc50d April 30, 2019

  • The item arrived today and there were no problems. My only criticism is that there was no written descriptive material about the mask that I requested prior to its shipment.
    Thank you

    No warning from the seller about the possible extra custom costs (another € 33!) that I had to pay, apart from the high senders' costs. Update: seller became offensive after receiving this feedback

    You seem to have high expectations for everyone but yourself.

    I am not aware of every country's customs laws. And my shipping costs were published before you bid.

    I hope people take the time to read how unreasonable some can be...
