then choose only ONE picture then send and do the next. It will not let you batch upload them all at once.

On mobile phone, upload them in this chat.

I will answer on the website once I research and write the answer, so thank you for your patience.

HI RAREWARES I HAVE ANOTHER ITEM.

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
with the condition of picture I showed you, would they go for 400-500GBP?

The condition looks good in the photo, are there issues that I am not seeing?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
not with these binoculars, no. Just need a bit of a clean. Lastly, could they be fake at all? there is no paperwork with them

no, there are no fake ones.

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
would anyone particularly be interested in purchasing these at all or just a case of auction sites?

Here are suggestions for selling online- GoAntiques.com, Truegether.com, Mercari.com, Wanelo.com,
Poshmark.com, Bonanza.com, Etsy.com, eBay, Pamono.com, and Chairish.com. For the UK, selency.uk,
loveantiques.com are good sites. For CANADA, kijiji.com and sellmystuffcanada.com are the most popular.

Facebook Marketplace is how most people post things for sale locally. Here are other local online
classifieds where the buyer picks up from you- Webstore.com, Varagesale.com (local),
and letgo.com (local), and 5miles.com (local).

Use invaluable.com, liveauctioneers.com, or auctionzip.com and search their directory for an
auction house near you and consign to them if you don't want to do all of the work of
listing and dealing with sellers.

Please scroll to the top or bottom of this page and click all five stars to end this one.
On mobile, just write FIVE STARS if you do not see the blue words Rate the Expert to Finish.
