If you buy from seller TACHI61-JP on eBay, please be careful. He sold me a very-nice Heianjo tsuba, but left it in the box, instead of packing it separately. So, of course it got scratched by the nails, & when I complained, he got very upset, & said that it couldn't have happened. I kept the tsuba, but it ticked me off that he wouldn't accept responsibility.
His sale items are excellent, but you might want to consider telling him to pack tsuba by themselves.
