I bid on this but am glad I was outbid. I looked closer and it sure looks like a lot of brass on the backside.

Yeah - they polished it to hide the brass.

Still a nice deal for $99.

Worn to a frazzle. I hate when the pictures of the back are purposely dark and vague.

A deal at $99 really. You may be right but I wont pay for brass Laughing

That seller knows it is a polished turd but has the balls to call it

"This is one of the Nicest 18s Cases we have seen here at APEX. If you are looking for a Beautiful Case for one of our Openface 18s Movements, this would be a great choice!"

Another seller who is either clueless or a thief.

The almost completely worn pattern gives one a sense of what that case is all about. Let's see what it sells for.

He has a couple of nice looking cases but when you start to look close questions are raised.

If you can't trust the descriptions either it becomes a lottery what you are actually buying.

Pity.
