IT HAS TWO CRACKED PLASTIC FRAME PIECES (THUMB SPOTS) NEAR THE NOSE WHERE ONE WOULD ADJUST THE MASK. A VERY COMMON SPOT FOR THIS TO HAPPEN. THIS IS NOTHING REALLY EVEN NOTICEABLE UNTIL YOU HOLD IT TO ADJUST IT IN PLACE & THAT'S HOW I CAME TO FIND IT. IF YOU LOOK AT IT YOU CAN'T EVEN SEE IT.

PLEASE READ BELOW BEFORE BIDDING...
Hello and thanks for checking out our auction & store. We are Kohl Kurios, three brothers: Jayson, Scott and Matt Kohl. We’ve been selling cool vintage stuff, obscure antiques, interesting collectibles and anything related to music for a year now. Please check out our ever-growing store!
We are passionate about our collectibles & stuff and hope to give you the best ebay experience possible. We aim to describe every detail of our items up for auction or for sale, and will grade them as accurately as possible, so you as the buyer have no unpleasant surprises when your item arrives. If there is ever a problem with your item, please message us here at ebay, we will always work with you to solve any problems. Record buyers are encouraged to use the grading chart listed above. Any serious or unique flaws on a record will be mentioned next to the official grading.
Since we will be so accurate with our grading, we will refund your purchase if there are any discrepancies from our grading. We just ask that you send the product back to us prior to your refund. We will not refund anything that is within our grading, however. Please read the description carefully before bidding.
PAYMENT IS EXPECTED WITHIN 7 DAYS AFTER AUCTION ENDS. Please, if you're going to bid, be prepared to pay as soon as possible.
SHIPPING WITHIN THE USA IS FREE ON MEDIA AND FIRST CLASS SHIPPED ITEMS.
Methods of shipping we use for domestic buyers:
MEDIA ITEMS (records, books, cd’s, tapes, etc): FIRST CLASS if 9 oz. or under, MEDIA MAIL if over 9 oz. (LP records never weigh below 9 oz, so they always ship media mail)
ITEMS WEIGHING UNDER 13 oz will always ship FIRST CLASS (unless it's a media item, then we'll use the cheapest method).
ITEMS WEIGHING OVER 13 oz will usually ship PARCEL POST unless they fit nicely into a PRIORITY MAIL flat rate box… and if so, they will be shipped using PRIORITY MAIL.
We will use other methods of shipping by request if requested BEFORE you finalize your payment. Please take note that we may charge you for the extra amount if you happen to request a more expensive shipping method.
All packages are shipped with USPS tracking. If you’re wondering where your package is, there’s no need to contact us, just view your transaction page on eBay and you can track your package there.
PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT WE OFTEN PAY FOR BOXES AND PACKING SUPPLIES WHICH IS FIGURED INTO SHIPPING PRICES.
WE SHIP ORDERS ON TUESDAYS AND FRIDAYS ONLY. If you make your payment by 8pm EST on a Monday or Thursday evening, your package will be shipped the next day.
ALL INTERNATIONAL BUYERS SHOULD WAIT TO PAY UNTIL THEY RECEIVE AN INVOICE FROM US. THE SHIPPING COSTS LISTED ARE A GUESS AND ARE MOST LIKELY TOO HIGH. WE CAN SAVE YOU MONEY ON SHIPPING IF YOU WAIT TO PAY WITH OUR INVOICE. We appreciate that some international buyers may want to pay immediately, but we'd rather save you the money if you can wait a little bit. We promise to send an invoice within 1 business day (but will most likely be within a few hours, depending on the time of day). Example: an LP record only costs $12.00 to ship to Canada, but it costs $18.00 to ship to Australia. So if you’re from Canada and you buy an LP, and don’t wait for our invoice you could be losing $6.00!!!
AS OF JANUARY 27, 2013: USPS HAS INCREASED THEIR PRICES DRAMATICALLY. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THESE NEW PRICES ARE OUT OF OUR CONTROL.
We offer a splendid discount for multiple purchases for international buyers, but you must wait for our invoice in order to take advantage of these discounts. Please contact us for more information, as it depends on the total weight of your package to consider issuing a discount.
WE DO NOT SHIP TO BRAZIL DUE TO THE COUNTRY'S POSTAL SERVICE'S HORRIBLE REPUTATION.
PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT INTERNATIONAL PACKAGES OVER 4 LBS MUST BE SHIPPED PRIORITY MAIL, WHICH CAN BE EXPENSIVE.
WE ACCEPT PAYPAL ONLY, PLEASE AND THANK YOU.
By bidding on or buying our items you accept and agree to these terms.
