Hi guys, I recently got a mono snapped billfold wallet off eBay used. John5 so kindly authenticated the wallet for me which I am very grateful for The wallet retails for $470 and the starting bid price was $188 with $12 shipping. The buy it now price was $228 which is what I got it for. There was about a day and a few hours left when I hit the buy it now. The wallet arrived today and I noticed that the sealant was peeling in an area and another area and that it had peeled off in a small area as well. The wallet was described as "excellent pre-owned". I saw in the pictures of the auction that there was this little brown hangy thing and I didn't realize that it was the peeling sealant. I was ok with the fact that there was a dimple on the interior cross grain leather from the snap indentation and also ok with the fact that you could see the snap impression through the mono canvas, like you could see that there was a snap under the canvas is what I'm trying to say. If it's visible in the pics I know what I'm in for. There were also 2 pen marks on the interior that were not mentioned but don't bother me. I am only bothered by something that could be an ongoing problem (continuing to peel). The seller just said 'return it w/in 7 days' and I'm torn. I feel like a cheapie but personally I feel like I was a bit taken to not be told about the sealant. what do you think? She responded very curtly and said that the sealant peeling is common for these wallets and that was all. Why on earth do people covet these wallets when they don't wear so well? These just don't seem so well made and like they would last for years. The datecode is relatively young as well, only '03. I wanted a wallet to match my bags but I'm not willing to pay $470 for new...yet. I think I probably would have been ok paying what I did for this one, had I known it had a sealant issue. I asked for a partial refund, $40 off so it would be the starting price if no one else bid. On a different but still similar note, she wrapped it really awfully, crumpled used tissue paper that had a brown mark on it *yuck* and tossed it into a priority paper envelope. I would have used clean tissue paper and a ziplock to protect it from the elements. Please advise what you would do?
