Some Ebay Sellers Are Unbelievable - Damaged Item

Recommended Posts

I bought a cheapish universal coin box off ebay to hold 8 coins.

It came from China so had quite a distance to travel but arrived in 6 days which I was very surprised with. Never had anything arrive so quick from over-seas.

The packaging was very poor. The thinest bubble wrap I have ever seen, thrown inside a massive bag to move around in. It also came with coin capsules which were all loose inside the bag.

As you can see, every corner is bashed in 😮

I contacted the seller straight away, but It took them 3 days to respond, luckily I'm a patient person.

They said, "As the box is still usable it could be sent off for repair. They offered me £3 to pay for the damage 🤨

I think thats very reasonable dont you think 😂

Looks like this one for £10.72 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Oak-Woods-Case-Display-Box-Wooden-Storage-Collections-Holders-For-5pcs-Coins/293418985893?hash=item44512269a5:g:lLUAAOSwxlBeGdmn

Could you not have found one in the UK for similar money?  Seems daft to me buying something generic like that from China !

Similar but not the same. Problem is most of the time you dont know where the items coming from.

Yeah, it's the same one, right?  I can see the Chinese lettering in one of your pics and the hinges are the same as well as the chamfers on the top and edges.
