He only has 11 feedbacks so far and eBay lists him a a new member in Japan in May of this year. Don't know if this guy represents a new generation of Japanese collector or if he is a long time collector who is just now beginning to participate directly on eBay. His 11 feedbacks so for are from purchases of a complete PX-10 plus various French bits typically of interest to Japanese collectors.
