    It is a beautiful table though. . . My guess is the table was redone and the machine taken out

    It is a beautiful table and lots of other things that I'd like as well. But why would someone display a Kotex vending machine in their livingroom? Not that I display one in my bathroom but I could see it placed there.

    Maybe it is a booth in an antique store - kind of weird to have a Kotex vending machine on display... I guess in a bathroom you could store stuff in there... eye roll.......

    Craig's List criteria for listing in mint, good, fair and poor condition:
    If it is mine and it is for sale, it is in Mint condition! If it is yours and it is for sale it is in Poor condition.
    Craig's List criteria for pricing.
    A $100 item you are selling is $1000 FIRM. A $100 item that you are buying is $10 OBO.
    Craig's List criteria for pictures.
    If you are selling an item, fuzzy, out of focus, from very far away, pictures of a different item, and no picture at all are preferred. If you are buying an item the front, back, sides, inside, bottom, top, x-ray, satellite photos, photos of the previous owners, people that built, designed, did maintenance on, and a picture with the pope with the item will be necessary and mandatory.

    I hope I cleared that up.

    I'm going to say not a 1910... but I'd take a fiddlebase VS3 (or VS2? or 28? 27? ) in a case for $50 in a heartbeat, even with that cleanup.

    Oh, you are very welcome Miriam, Cathy, and Auntpiggylpn. I think we all needed a little clarification or at least some understanding on that.
    I forgot to mention that,... If a buyer is traveling more than 5 minutes to pick up an item you are selling, there is an automatic reduction in the value of the item by 25%. If they are traveling more than 10 minutes to pick up an item you are selling, there is an automatic reduction in the value of the item by 50%. If a buyer is traveling more than 15 minutes to pick up an item you are selling, there is an automatic reduction in the value of the item by 95%. And If a buyer is traveling more than 20 minutes to pick up an item you are selling, there is an automatic reverse in the value of the item and you owe them the full purchase price AND the item. After all, it is your fault that you live so far from them! ~ Little known fact of buying and selling on CL. ~
    If for some reason a buyer shows up to look at an item, whatever money they have in their pocket, OR LESS, becomes the value of the item you are selling and you are bound by law to give them the item for the price they say is fair. ~ Little known fact of buying and selling on CL. ~

    Grant,

    Taking the tongue out of the cheek for a few seconds. There is a grading/ condition chart that is considered to be the standard. http://www.ismacs.net/condition.html

    Looks like they have been stored outside in all the elements of weather. It always makes me so sad to see a treadle base in such poor condition

    I just don't understand people - trying to sell something (especially on Ebay) without pics is like trying to make a cake from scratch with no flour. And for $400 without seeing it?? Ugh.... Oh... wait a minute - new seller - didn't realize that. They need the book Ebay for Dummies lol.
