There is no 'Buy in Price' for this item 

Please make sure you study the pictures and text. If you suspect that any item has a feature that you want but I have not described, unless I confirm it, you buy at your risk.

Buyer responsible for any customs and other import or clearance charges that may apply in their country of import. I will declare this at full value and never as a gift so don't ask.

Exports to Mainland China, Russia, Taiwan and Korea are sent uninsured at the buyer's risk unless extra postage is paid by the buyer.  So far since 1980 I only had one uninsured parcel lost.

Important:  I have had buyers give U.S.A. addresses for the Ebay invoice but who give an address in another country for delivery when paying by PayPal.  That means that additional postage should be paid. If this happens again and the correct postage is not paid I will raise a dispute with Ebay.

I reserve the right to cancel sale if not paid with 7 business days from end of auction.
