Well, Mike, among other things, there's a black F Photomic FTN body in KEH EX/EX+ condition that he originally bought new.

I would definitely inspect everything carefully and describe it, as well as take photos and post them. Also, I'm obsessive about packing things carefully. The only things I'm uncertain of, are how to test the metered finders (e.g. battery availability options) and whether I should leave the camera bodies as-is, or have the light seal foam replaced (they need it). I'm not sure if having it replaced as a seller is a waste of money, or if it would drastically improve the chance of resale.
