I love this stuff. Buying something that is listed for much less than other similar items. There is some risk, but that is the excitement. In this case a 6008i for hundreds less than similarly listed items. Near mint condition with some secret hidden flaw. In this case I found it right away. The film did not fully wind up after the last exposure. A quick inspection of the pressure plate revealed the sensor-wire had broken off near the solder joint. An easy fix!

It is odd to find this in a near-mint specimen with no signs of tampering. Perhaps a QC issue. If anyone has a 6008i that does not wind up the film after the last exposure, check the little wire. You can see it without taking the pressure plate off, just look in from the side.
