Harvey,

Your commentary on this is correct. First it comes down to the honesty of the seller, not saying he's totally dishonest, but if there is a mistake in his listing information it should be corrected, and also of value, as an older NOS "67" would in my way of thinking be worth a bit more than a 1972.

Hope to see you at Cirque.

Any one have experiance with eBay seller "Campyfred" ?

They have a "NOS" Paramount listed as a 1967, by the ser. # and equipment it is a 1972. I mentioned it to the seller and got a rude reply "get a life"

If I was un-aware and bid it as a 1967 (much rarer than a '72) I would not be happy when a 1972 arrived.

no relation to seller, thankfully.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Somehow, this seems to be intentional misrepresentation, given that you have tried to make him aware.  Is this a good case for asking eBay to kill the auction?  you have your email and his response.  Or is eBay jst known not to care at all?
