So you threw it in the wash and all the wax came off and it just looked like a clean, un-waxed version of the jacket? I'd be curious if you know what this medal ribbon was. It's on my SS14 Mountain Jacket:
I actually have a bird dropping on my orange SS13 Aircraft Jacket. It's quite small and doesn't look to have stained it in any way. It's dried by now and I keep forgetting to get a brush to use with dishwashing soap to get it off. I have a spare jacket so I'm not worried and I'm quite certain it won't leave a mark. The power of ventile?
Oh, I don't doubt that. Usually from what I've read any damage they visibly point out in the photos and I don't recall ever seeing anything graded higher than a "C". Personally I've used Rakuten twice, once for an Inverallan and once for a Cabourn piece, and both were new with tags and easy transactions.
