Have been on the hunt for a perfect AUTOart LP 720-4 for about two years now. Pulled the trigger on one on ebay and received it today. I was shocked to find out it's the same exact one I had bought from a seller in Indonesia two years ago and had let go due to all sorts of defects and damage. The world would be a better place if people understood what 'brand new' actually means. Seems it traded a few hands in between my last encounter with it.

    Honest and competent evaluation of model conditions is a problem every collector faces in a world where we rarely get a chance to view a potential purchase in person. Some of the mis-classifications are honest mistakes (I can't tell you how often a DX'er notice a flaw in my pics that I didn't see IN PERSON) but some are deliberate - no solution for that since rarely will a seller agree to providing more detailed pics or true info...
