I recently won an auction for a lightly used AF-S 300 f2.8 on ebay for $1400. It is in immaculate condition and works perfectly. Here is my concern. The serial number has been carefully removed and black paint reapplied to that area. Somebody removed the serial number for some reason. Does Nikon put the serial number anywhere else other than on the outside of the lens? I don't know what to do, so I figured maybe someone else on here may know the legal implications of this. The member auctioning the item is a large auction house that lets you send the item to them, then they sell the item for you and then send you a check. What should I do?
