    Buying "Screen Used" Items Off eBay

    No, I didn't write and ask them anything. Just went by what they posted in their description of the piece. Another red flag when buying screen used--watch out for Double Double Speak Speak. "Approximately only 300 hundred....." Which was it, 300 or approximately 300?? "This is the screen...

    Buying "Screen Used" Items Off eBay

    No where is "Buyer Beware" more to be adhered to than on eBay!! Especially in the realm of screen used anything.

    Did this prop ever get made? In case anyone else is looking for a tin of Myntz, they have them at Trader Joe's here in Texas, only place I've seen them thus far. The cost $1.69 and they are a rather strong little mint! .
