Quoted from tomdotcom:
Damn right next door to me, I didn't think you wanted to ship it!!
Congrats Vex, I wish I could find one this nice, a little closer to home!!
Put me at the top of the list if you ever decide to sell it
Correct, I didn't want to ship it. There were a lot of factors that convinced me to ship to him though, and while I'm not going to list all of them here I will say that some factors were that 1) I will not have to prep the pin for shipping myself (I've never done it and didn't feel comfortable with that) ; 2) he was the first one to contact me after posting this thread; and 3) he was second in line behind me when the pin was first sold by Bill here on Pinside. It seemed appropriate that he got the pin this time around.
