Did that auction go the distance or did it get ripped? the dial was wrong but what a great movement.

I recognize the feedback # but don't know who the buyer is.

Finding good BIN's on ebay anymore has been very difficult, as there are numerous unemployed or retired derelicts who sit full time in front of their computers or phones now, waiting to pick off anything worth a damn.

ROFLMAO

That's the GIG economy for you!

I have a friend who he does is liquidate estates. He complains constantly of these "professional" buyers that go from sale to sale looking for rips.

Not quite...I just put marks on the wall of my cell. Seriously, I have the best job I have ever had and I have had some great ones. I really love it almost all of the time but it is great to be able to see the end of it. I have over 150,000 actual miles just on Delta so far this year (350,000 Delta sky-miles this year). I have 4 total weeks at home. I love to travel and love what I do but I will be glad to be done with it at 66 and a half...in 20 months. I will be glad to just be a watch hound and an itinerant photographer again.
