Stay away from this item: https://www.ebay.com/itm/COLUMBIA-BI-MO ... SwJs9fgP3A

Has been listed repeatedly in the past, under various seller names, with offer to Buy-it-now off eBay. I have reported it, (again). It gets stopped by eBay on a regular basis.

This person has been listing this scam on and off for the last few years. I flag it whenever I see it.

Appears to be cancelled now. This was one of the few times that I've seen it get bids. Was sick to think of someone getting clipped.

Its been cancelled now but it would be useful if next time it appears one of the pictures could be posted in a thread so we all know what the scam photos look like
I am interested in all forms of audio media including: gramophones, phonographs, wire recorders, the tefifon, reel to reel tapes, radiograms and radios.
