Can’t say I’ve been burned, however only got one pin non local shipped to me. Was not about the pictures more about trusting the fellow. Maybe just got lucky but got a RR Woz shipped to my the seller even packed it back in original box he took care of all shippabd insurance of the pin. Was only 2-3 months old game. I was more worried about sending the wire transfer as it was sent not able to be reversed so it cleared the bank in 1-2 days.
I got a good feeling from sellers PM, feedback on Pinside as well as eBay and Facebook history. Got his business contact information and spoke at length with seller.
It’s important imo to give feedback on Pinside. I just found out about this so I don’t have too many feedback but whenever I sell or buy now I ask the Pinsider yo give an honest feedback which I hope is always positive. I try to under promise and over deliver.
