Vintage HIT Backgammon Game Quality Board Stones Inlaid
This is a nice vintage backgammon game. The case is made of inlaid wood--alternating dark and light wood. The surface does have wear but could be polished to make it look nice. T is no handle--I do not think that t ever was one. The are 2 metal clasps that hold the top and bottom together. The inside of the case is felt or velour? T are 15 brown playing pieces(stones) and 15 white ones. T are 2 white dice and 2 brown ones with white dots--t is one die that is larger with numbers. T is an instruction booklet that is written in English and French( I think) that is made by H.I.T. Industries, Ltd. Avenel, N.J. 07001. T is also a label on the box that has the same company name.
I will be out of touch from early next Friday morning 4-2-10 until late on Sunday 4-4-10 . I will be unable to answer questions or send invoices until Monday morning 4-5-10 . Please browse and bid—t will only be a short delay.Due to ebay’s policy changes of not allowing sellers to offer insurance--$1.75 handling charge has been added into shipping costs—it will be removed unless you request insurance. YOU CAN SAVE MONEY if you will wait for me to invoice you through ebay—not email. DO NOT USE THE END OF ITEM NOTIFICATION that ebay sends as soon as the auction ends--the shipping calculator is hardly ever right and will not show combined items or any discounts . I am now using UPS for larger and heavier items and they offer sellers a 30% discount and I will be passing it along to the buyer—but I have to edit the cost that the shipping calculator shows you. Insurance up to $100.00 is included with UPS shipping. If you want insurance you must request a total and wait for me to add it to the price. Even though I package very securely—money will not be refunded on uninsured items. I will now only accept Paypal due to ebay's new policy. SORRY! Item will be shipped as soon as payment is cleared--usually within 3 days excluding Sundays, Holidays and bad weather. Payment isÂ required within 7 days unless you have made other arrangements with me before the end of the auction. I will send a reminder after 4 days-- and after 10 days an unpaid item dispute will be filed with ebay and the sale will be void. I am always willing to work with a buyer if the request is reasonable.
PLEASE DO NOT PAY UNTIL YOU ARE INVOICED, you might be able to save some money on the shipping cost if you wait until I have the package completely wrapped--also t is going to be a $1.75 handling fee since ebay no longer allows sellers to offer insurance--it can be removed if you wait for me to invoice you through ebay. T are some small discounts for Priority InternationalÂ with online postage andÂ the savings will be passed on to the buyer. The shipping calculator is not exact especially on large or combined purchases and does not show the online discounts. The calculated shipping is a close estimate but is not exact.Â I will combine shipping on items within 10 days if you will let me know that you are still bidding. You will only be charged for the extra weight--HANDLING FEES ARE NOW HAVING TO BE ADDED IN. I will ship domestic packages- Priority-Parcel Post-First Class (if weight is under 13 oz.) and Media Mail (if the item qualifies). I use online shipping for tracking purposes and it is convenient because I live far out in a rural area and this allows me to ship the items quicker. Priority includes delivery confirmation for free, but all other choices will include 18c for delivery confirmation. International shipping options are limitedÂ with online shipping, so international bidders should ask for rates before bidding. The new options that will be used are Priority Mail International which will offer two sizes of flat rate boxes--these can be used for items that weigh up to 20 pounds that will fit into the box(the boxes are not very big).Â All other Priority Mail International packages will be based on weight and rates to the buyer's address.Â Canada and Mexico...
