My username may ring a bell for some that have frequented FM. You'll know I have plenty of positive feedback over there. A current member here recommended you all as a more receptive audience. I'm glad he did, because I'm impressed! I'll have to start browsing and hopefully contributing to some of the other boards here more in the future. Allow me to extend warm greetings since I'm new here; and thanks in advance!
The following is most of my original post from FM (sold items deleted):
A friend of mine is emptying his Leica closet. I asked if he was sure he didn't want to hang on to everything for a while. He demurred. I finally offered to help.
All of the items in the first group below are absolutely mint: like new, in the box, with all the original accessories and literature included by the manufacturer. Original invoices (or copy) will be provided for most (exceptions noted). This is a collection. Each item has been used only a few times, then safely stored in the original box and packaging.
Included are any fees and insured shipping USPS Priority or UPS Ground inside of the continental United States. I am offering a 3 day inspection guarantee: return the item at your own expense (insured shipping!) and I will refund your original cost minus fees.
Sorry for the super long preamble ..... just trying to keep all the bases covered. Please PM and/or post replies with interest initially. I'll check in as often as I can (at least twice a day). There's no rush on this end, so your patience is appreciated.
