I just realized I paid a robust $13.75 for shipping on the eBay listing. You think that would have ensured boxed shipping. Think again!!

The package weighed 1.1 lbs. Shipping it in a free Priority Mail box would not have added anything to the $9.90 the seller paid to ship it. :whistle:

I think I see a crack running down the back top left to the middle of the slab.  I am obviously hoping I am wrong.

The slab is remarkably intact. Filthy, but not shattered. Let's take a closer look...

No, that is just dirt.

Pages are peeking out a little under the right side of the cover. Can't tell if that was like that before from the pics in the listing. Might be nothing or it could be something.

Hmm. The bubblewrap smells like anthrax. Is that bad?

You sure it's anthrax? Smell it again:banana:

Now the question of feedback. I am going to hammer the star ratings, but I think this warrants a more overt warning to potential buyers. I think neutral might be the way to go. Seller did not take proper precautions to protect the slab for shipping and the slab itself is super dirty and gross.
