Make sure you take plenty of pictures of the said items and save the pictures from the sellers, if at all possible, to make a comparaison.
Save all email communications with all parties, follow up with written letters send with return receipt, if emails do not resolve the issue.
Those are clear cases of misrepresentation.
Tom Bihn Inc is, now, a recognazible boutique brand.
Ebay is the perfect medium to transform a high value garage sale find, in not so pristine condition, into a lucrative deal.
I have seen it with all sorts of items, especially writing instruments, which are easy to misrepresent using all sorts of tricks.
I am sorry to see the same thing happening with pre-owned TB bags.
For all these reasons, I think it is best to stay away from the bay, to avoid getting soaked, unless, dealing with a known seller.
