  7. Hey Antti, it's probably from uchiko. The prominence is from the flash. Hardly noticeable in hand! Stephen, thanks!
  8. You know what? I'm going to let this go super cheap. I have my eyes on something else and would really like to free up the funds. If it will motivate a buyer to come foreward, I will accept $2250. That's my bottom price.
