All photos are of the actual item we have for sale, several photos are supplied for each item and as such are a large part of the description.
We are not experts and do not know the history of the items we have for sale.
All of our items are used second hand, vintage or antique, they are NOT new.
Some items perform specific tasks, for example a miners safety lamp, our description may state very good condition, but this is a genuine item that has been used in a working environment, a cold, wet, and dirty mine! Obviously we are not able to test this for the purpose it was intended for, nor would we suggest it should be used for such.
We try to describe the items condition as accurately as possible, however describing is highly subjective, our opinion may differ from yours. These are real items used by real people, for the purpose they were intended for, if you need specific information or are unsure of the condition of an item, please ask and we will do our best to answer.
