Magic Lantern Glass Slide
Size of Slide: 3 1/4" X 4"
Shipping Discounts: Save money by making a SINGLE payment for purchases made within a 7-day period (If you need longer than 7 days, please communicate with me first to see if it is okay). EBay will automatically calculate shipping discounts during check-out. If the calculated shipping cost seems wrong, please contact me BEFORE paying.
US Addresses: EACH ADDITIONAL SLIDE is 60 cents.
International: Automatically calculated based on weight. First slide is 5 ounces. Each additional slide adds 2 ounces.
I added automatic shipping discounts because I was spending too much time refunding money for buyers who did not wait for a combined invoice. Some of my older listings show a shipping table with slightly different rates, and there may be older listings with shipping rates set before the post office raised its prices. I will honor the lowest stated combined shipping rate if you contact me BEFORE paying. ALSO: If you buy 20 or more slides, I can usually package the slides in to flat-rate boxes for a cheaper price than the automatic discounts shown, so please contact me before paying and I will adjust the invoice(s). The combined shipping rates for priority or express mail may be too high, so if you want combined items shipped priority or express, contact me BEFORE paying and I will adjust the price. If you pay in multiple payments, or don't wait for an invoice, etc., I will assume you are okay with the shipping cost you paid and will not refund excess money (if any).
Specific Issues/Conditions (if any): Please review the seller's notes above.
General Conditions: I do not mention defects which are clearly visible in the pictures. In addition, I do not list problems which are typical for slides this old. For example: Glass may be dusty or have smudge marks or other dirt on it (I do not attempt to clean before selling) or may have minor scratches, surface abrasions, or oxidation/heat damage between the sheets of glass. Small specks or scratches may be present in the image itself. There may be writing, scribbles, or other marks on labels, and the labels may be torn, faded, or missing. In some cases there may be a label on the reverse side which is not shown. There can be small nicks on the edges or corners of the glass and also small scratches on the glass which I might not call out. I do make a special note of any cracks (unless they are behind the tape and I don't know they are there). The tape holding the slide together may be loose, ripped, torn, damaged, or partially missing, and sometimes the slide might be sticky from the adhesive on the tape or label. There can often be slight browning/and or fading of the image, particularly where the image meets the paper mat. Please zoom in and examine all pictures carefully. For slides which are framed in stapled cardboard (typically movie slides), there can be rust on the staples, slightly deteriorating cardboard, etc.
If there is a date/year in the title of this listing, it comes from the label on the slide and is usually the date of the item (such as artwork) pictured in the slide. It may not be the date the slide was actually created. Also, I often can not fit the full title of the slide and other information in the listing. Please review all of the pictures and zoom in to get the full titles of the slide.
Photos are hard to get perfect: The actual slide is usually more "in focus" than the pictures I take. Flash marks or back lighting may create a bright white area or other reflections not in the actual slide (often a reflection of the camera). I generally take pictures using a computer screen as a backlight, and it sometimes create a grid or wavy pattern that is not in the slide. I usually take the pictures from the LABEL side of the slide, which is often the BACK side. This means the pictures are often a mirror image of how they should be projected.
Provide your correct address: I do not honor requests to change the address an item is being shipped to. If an item comes back to me as undeliverable or refused, I generally do not refund money. Sometimes international customers want their order shipped to an address in the US. Unfortunately, eBay does not let me change countries when printing postage, so you need to set the address you want when checking out.
I can not delay shipping paid orders: Sometimes because of vacations, etc., buyers ask me NOT to ship until a certain date. Ebay tracks when I ship, so I have to ship within my stated promise or I can lose my status with eBay. Please hold off paying until you want the items shipped.
Customs & International (non-US) orders: Customs and other similar fees are NOT included in the price and are the sole responsibility of the buyer. If you are an non-US buyer with less than 10 positive feedback OR you plan on buying items totalling more than $100 from me, I may require the shipment to be done via an international trackable method. Please contact me to discuss before buying. (Long-term repeat customers: no need to contact me for approval). Depending on the country, it can take 6 weeks or longer to arrive, particularly if it gets held up in customs.
