  1. I would have thought, that was part of the paypal service SOMEBODY is already paying for.
  2. What- exactly is Lonely Planet saying? Priced too high for the mid range quality segment? Sorry I'm dense. In these situations, how is the payment system usually handled- been wondering about that for some time...based on trust that the last payment is rewarded by the vendor shipping merchandise or are the payments held in a separate account?
  3. Thank you guys- from a less experienced member. But old enough to listen to his 'gut'. Considered it's a two our drive to look at this item- I see now it's a waste of time.
  4. WARNING, .... To Buyers. Easy fix- I'll help you out and NOT buy.
  5. Absolutely true, prime reason why I come here- and when I have the budget will likely buy here- not knowledgeable enough to snag a deal on ebay so I will pay more but have faith in this site.
  6. Maybe different vibe if the op was more engaged.
  7. No response from the seller? Not serious? If there is doubt thrown out there- $6k is a bit of a risk. Thanks guys. Keep this site safe for the rest of us.
  8. I would suppose the IJA was strict on length- but I would hate to the guy who decided to cut down the family blade.
  9. Yes- this guy. Is it more the mounts make the tachi, or would it have the correct curve- they look the same to me. https://www.ebay.com/itm/WW2-Japanese-Samurai-PRESENTATION-TACHI-Sword-Gendai-Naokatsu-3-5-3-Paulownia/114080067394?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D225086%26meid%3D037d438da18443fa924895eee7c42d2f%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D362910930648%26itm%3D114080067394%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2060778&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507
  10. I am drawn to the tachi- what do you see as 'nuggets'?
  11. Collectors are weird - think with their hearts more than their brains So true.
  12. Or like me, I've yet to break my habit of buying high and selling low. Seems most people don't share my opinion of what has value......the unwashed masses. BTW Happy New Year, hope your fortunes turn.
