Ok, I'm curious to hear people's feedback on this recent online purchase I made. It was a very rare record from the 1950's. I'd been wanting a copy for the past 50 years. Saw an offer at a somewhat reasonable price for a copy in NM condition from overseas. I received it, there were large, deep scratches throughout. It was unplayable, skipped like crazy, AND the jacket had a tear. I contacted the seller immediately. He told me he thoroughly inspected it before shipping and was surprised. He would not allow me to ship it back because he didn't want to pay the return postage. He told me that if I destroyed the record and jacket he'd refund my money. I hated to do that to this rare record. I suggested he just give me a partial refund; the record was useless but at least I could display the cover. He refused and told me I'd have to destroy it and send him convincing pictures. So that's what I did; sliced the jacket in half and took a key to both sides of the record, sent him the photos and got a full refund. It seems like such a waste! If I were the seller I would have apologized and either accepted the return or else just told the buyer to keep it. I've never had a transaction like this before. Any thoughts?
