That clarifies several questions.
I did originally wonder if seconds were no longer marked CIIG, but the first time I enquired of this guy he actually replied that the weight in question was marked.
Since then he has literally posted dozens on ebay, all supposedly unmarked, which raised the question as to what was going on.
He has been an ebay member since 2002, and I've seen him selling Caithness weights for over a year, if not two, so I'm damn sure he knows they are all seconds, and he is just avoiding mentioning that
to potential buyers, which I think is rather dishonest for someone who knows and sells a lot.
With some of them he is listing them as 1/1s - on the basis they have no name and must be special.
(He is based in Stirling - so watch out folks)
As an aside Allan, might it not be better to junk the unlimited seconds as cullet as well, rather than let them onto the market?
