Yhis item looks nice but I'm always cautious about new members.

I don't know about that one, but take a look at this joker in China. He's started a three-day auction of an instrument that still has nearly 8 days to go in what appears to be a genuine auction in Germany here. :huh:

And he wants 300.00 to post it !!!!!!! :blink: :o :angry:

Hm, if someone's genuinely interested in the Wheatstone, I'll volunteer to go and have a look at it, since I live only 10 miles or so from Plymouth. This should eliminate scammers, since they don't like being visited much...

Undewrstandably, but this one looks genuine; at least it would take a resourceful scammer to put that slideshow up on Yahoo Photos ...
