I have WAY too many horribly sad stories about shipping damage. I have tried to suggest to sellers to pack carefully. Sometimes they do OK, sometimes they fail miserably, and sometimes they get angry and offended that I dare tell them how to do anything. I wish there was a fool-proof solution (other than local pickup which isn't always an option).

And I need to vent a little further.  This was in good shape before the
seller didn't pack it properly :(.

Anyway, thanks for listening fellow retro enthusiasts :)
