    I have a really hard time with that story...really. The disc looks like it's hiding damage that they admit to. I'm sure someone will come along shortly to fill in the story. I wouldn't pay for that meal though...

    A definite pass. I agree looks like the disk was added to cover damage. Cleaning rod is a repro and I see a lot of telltale signs of a recent cleanup, to make it appear nicer.
