We mention of auctions being claimed “mint in box” , “new in box”
Or what have you ...... here’s good advice ...A) look at all pictures , if there aren’t any or there is one crappy picture ask the seller for more. If it’s “too much” for him/her to upload a few clear, explicit pictures then DONT BID! B) check sellers feedback, see what others have said. C) ASK QUESTIONS. IF I ask the seller “How is the paint over all? Any chips, rash , bubbles/blisters etc or is the paint very even and smooth/glossy all around?” If I get a evasive reply “looks good” , “paints nice”. “Shiney” etc I do the follow ...... I Don’t bid and move on!!! But ultimately I want a clean, non smelly model without rash or missing parts and with even, glossy paint. To me that’s “mint”. If it was handled, displayed, etc long as it looks new I’m good! Even paper work isn’t a deal breaker. I seldom look at it and honestly it’s a PIA to keep and keep track of!
