Yes, I've seen it Kevin. A lot of unknowns though surrounding these prints on sale unfortunately and the usual predicament of having nothing to test it with. [Confused]

It's one I have already, but I'm sure it will interest others given its scarcity nowadays, if the price stays reasonable.
Even worth a gamble perhaps so long as it remains very low towards the end.

Thanks there, Adrian!

It looks to be the full feature, I wish that they could have given a better description, however.

There's no screen shots so it's a gamble with what quality it is

There's no anything really, so total guess work??
Don't even know who the distributor was???

"Untested but appears to be very good"

How can anyone say that of totally untested goods?

Well the reels and box look ok [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Wink]

The leader looks mangled, so that's not a good sign. Still, I'd be tempted to bid, if it had US shipping. Dumbo is my favorite Disney feature.

Maybe they sniffed or licked it! 😜 I think the rating is only good not very good. 🤑

Imagine then, how many bids this would have, if it had a decent detailed description and some valid worthy screenshots John!

The seller has sold countless reels over more than a year. You'd think they would have thought to invest in a projector by this point [Smile]

Not my place to judge I suppose. I'm curious to see what it goes for though. Best of luck to anyone bidding! And good luck to the winner too! [Wink]
