DESCRIPTION

This is a nice 6 tool bow with fitted leather case. The tools are somewhat unusual for this type of bow. In addition to the corkscrew, it also has a saw blade, a large and small screw driver tip, a punch/awl and what appears to be a letter opener. It is marked "Germany" (see photo), and fully open it measures 5 1/4 inches.

I consider the bow to be in good to very good condition with the spring being very tight and firm. I estimate the plating to be about 80% intact with some age and wear discoloration on the base and parts of the frame. The leather case is in fair condition. It has the original snap, and is generally sound, though there is some separation of the stitching along the base and right side which can be seen in the accompanying photo.

Please ask any questions before bidding at wirehelix@yahoo.com.

 

 

Payment, postage and insurance

 

U.S. buyers: For payment, I prefer personal checks or money orders, though I do take Western Union and PayPal. In most cases I strongly recommend buyers opt for full insurance, since once I mail the package I cannot be responsible for damage, loss or failure to deliver. If the buyer opts for insurance, in case of loss, damage or failure to deliver, I will provide the buyer with the postage and insurance receipts, but the buyer will be responsible for filing the insurance claim with the post office. Unless otherwise requested, I prefer using Priority Mail, but 1st class is available for smaller items. Delivery Confirmation is required and a modest handling charge is included in the postage estimate!

 

International buyers: As for payment, I prefer payment by Western Union, though I do accept PayPal. I also accept personal checks if payable in U. S. dollars and drawn on a U.S. Bank (please, NO international money orders). An estimate of the shipping cost (which includes a modest handling charge and cost of a Certificate of Mailing) can be calculated in the listing. As for shipping-- PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: MAIL SENT OUTSIDE THE U. S. IS AT THE BUYER'S RISK 100%. THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE DOES NOT OFFER INSURANCE OR TRACKING SERVICE FOR ANY REASONABLY PRICED INTERNATIONAL MAIL. THEREFORE, I CAN NOT, AND WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGE., LOSS OR FAILURE TO DELIVER. BY BIDDING, YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS! HOWEVER, I WILL PROVIDE A CERTIFICATE OF MAILING AS PROOF THAT THE ITEM WAS MAILED. If you are concerned about the possibility of loss or damage, I strongly recommend opting for Registered Mail, especially for more expensive items. Although Registered Mail is a little more expensive, and does not offer electronic tracking either, it is the safest and most secure means of shipping. In any case, please be assured that I am a good packer, and always attach the mailing address securely to the item inside the package should it become separated.

All Buyers: At the end of the auction, please wait for my email with the invoice which will include shipping and insurance costs (if any) and payment options. Please do not pay until you have received my invoice.

 

Please email any questions before bidding at wirehelix@yahoo.com.
