    They could be 'returns'.

    Actually just cancelled. It's cheaper in many other places.

    Trouble No More 4LP/2CD used copy from amazon marketplace arrived this morning. On first inspection I find no issues. Box is undamaged but of course no outer seal. Booklet is mint, LP outer and inner sleeves the same, as is the vinyl. Only on side 2 of first LP but all seems excellent. The 2 cd's play too. Cant see what the original issue was, perhaps just a return so a mad price to resell at.

    I did cancel my original order the other day, I checked back on the order invoice and noticed in my haste I'd selected one with a damaged box. So cancelled that and reordered one with description stating download code and seal missing, also a quicker delivery too. Very happy purchase. Love this era, nice to finally have myself a physical copy.

    Glad to hear it! Sounds like someone bought it, used the DL code, and then returned it perhaps? Nice snag in any case.

    Thanks! Just grabbed one of those Dylan's as well.

    I have never ordered a used item from another countries Amazon but I have ordered quite a few from the US store and in the end I can't recommend them enough tbh. Sure, you get some that are absolutely beat up or something else wrong and you have to return it but they make it so easy it's worth gambling sometimes. I've gotten countless amazing deals but just the last two recently was an immaculate still sealed complete Mono box set of this same Mr. Bob Dylan for the insane price of $40 haha.. I also got the deluxe box set of Deep Purples new album Infinite for like $10-13 and it was still sealed but had a couple medium sized scratches on the front (Even got to use the included shirt as a pre.

    Also, you can't fully judge the condition or description since i've gotten Like New in awful condition and Acceptable in near flawless condition. I take less chances then I used to since I am not home as much but I treat them all as a "wait and see" so I never get my hopes up when a really messed up item shows up.

    Exactly the same situation here - I can see no issue on either packaging nor vinyl.

    I never bought this set at the time (the only Bootleg Series to date I could say that about), so to have it land for such a ridiculous price is, frankly, ridiculous.

    Many thanks to @Larsen for the original tip-off. One of the best deals I've had in some time.

    There’s an echo in here... :)

    My Dylan box showed up today. Visually it’s perfect, static-y vinyl for all records.

    Many thanks @Larsen for the heads-up.

    I'm happy you all received your copies in great condition! I'm still waiting for shipping confirmation on my order.

    I may be wrong, but I think I read somewhere that the 4-LP/2-CD included a download card for all the music on the 8xCD version. Correct me if I'm wrong!

    I believe it did. Mine has long gone, as per the advert. Curious as to why amazon accepted a return when the download code was used. I assume something they don't check. A number of people quick enough to order, use code and return box. Which has worked out okay for us.

    Just how are they going to check that? And is is made clear on Warehouse deals that downloads may not work.

    Don't know, good point. And i already acknowledged i was aware there wasnt a download code. It wasnt a complaint. Just asking the question.

    I got the Dylan box too. It looks brand new to me, with only slightly ripped shrink wrap which I've removed anyway. A great buy, and big thanks to @Larsen for the heads up :)

    Thanks for the heads up! Price with shipping to the US ran about $21 - it was sitting at $59 for the CDs alone in the US store.
