    I would. I think you get one free auction cancelation a year where you end a auction having to cancel a bid. Otherwise, you may be charged a fvf

    Good to know, this is why I don't deal with women's clothing

    I shipped a framed pic via FedEx - they have a special box that "suspends" the picture inside by way of a plastic sleeve thingamabob. I think it was about $40 but depends on weight and destination.

    What exactly is the cutoff for leaving negative feedback? Is it 45 days or 60? If it's 45, I'd stall him for a few days until the cutoff passes. If he's threaten you with negative, report him to Ebay, and you shouldn't have to worry about it.

    The all black color was under 500 so I splurged for a red camera! Guess the price is too good to be true but will see.

    Well, its been 41 days, but I think you can leave feedback up to 90 days...He hasn't threatened me with "negative feedback" but says "am now prompted to give you feedback...but feel bad about this" is that a threat I can use against him?

    If you buy online, make sure it has a USA warranty (if you live in the USA). If it doesn't Nikon USA will NOT honor the warranty. As a matter of fact, they won't even repair it for a fee! If it says international warranty, that is not a USA warranty. Also check resellerratings.com if you have concerns about the seller

    Holy cow...just got back from a cookout and Braves game with family, who asked if I might help unload some stuff for them on eBay. First thing was a bag of 90% silver Mercury dimes with $500 face value (5,000 dimes) - bag weighed like 20 pounds. Unsearched, so might be some good ones in there. Next was several rolls of silver dollars, appeared to be mint uncirculated. Several ounce bars and one 10-oz bar. Several bags of circulated loose silver coins. Several US mint commemorative silver sets. Was told about, but did not see, gold & platinum coins & bullion as well. As much fun as it would have been to have 1-cent auctions on all that stuff, told them to shop it around at coin stores - no reason to pay the 13% or whatever in eBay and PayPal fees, plus shipping, insurance etc...or better yet, hang onto it - no financial emergency is forcing the sale. Was cool to look at and play with though! But now I'm thinking about making a market rate offer on the bag o' dimes, hoping to find a few that would pay for the entire lot...

    In which case, I would send it Express.

    I think your pic's will save the day, however something isn't quite right with the measurements. the inside dimension is dead on for a US12.
