    Thanks for the heads up. I am checking with the seller if he will ship to Sweden.

    I asked him for a shipping quote too. Its strange, he has only sold 2 other items this year and 7 items total...

    Are you sure you bought 42 boxes? He still has 36 items left, so that means he had over 1500 boxes to sell. I suspect the auction is for only one box, and at $75 that is not a great deal.

    His ads are deceiving. He also has listed 19-8x10 Lisco and Toyo film holders all for a Buy It Now price of $40.00! That is the way the ad listing reads. And the film is listed as 42 boxes for $75.00. Both ads list the total number as being for sale as a unit. By listing the quantity below as "available" he implies the price is per unit. But that is not how the listing reads.

    I posted a reply last night but I am not sure what happened to it.

    The seller emailed me and said it is $75 PER BOX.....

    Per his auction, he does offer a full refund for any reason. If you haven't paid, don't. If you have, ask for a refund.

    Someone might try sending that guy a message offering to take a big chunk of film for a more reasonable price. Sometimes that works.
