    New, never used?

    As a long time 101 series collector, I was seriously interested in this item based on the title and description. Then I looked closely at the pictures.

    The knobs, meter, and vfo display areas are loaded with dust, and there are imperfections/marks/scratches visible in various spots when you expand the photos.

    While this 101EE may be in very good condition, with original box and accessories, it is far from NEW never used collector quality. I'd be curious to see what the inside looks like.

    Take some time to clean up the front panel and knobs, take some good clear photos, and be honest with your description. Then you may get a good buck for it.

    I'm sure the moderators will kill this comment in short order. But this ad is dishonest and misleading! Buyer beware!

    I think that these are fair observations and form a question for the seller: please clarify: is this radio as listed truly "new and never used?" If so, why would the knobs and meter have so much dust if it's in fact new and never used?

    Fair questions to ask a seller making such claims.

    Yea it looks as though it sat outside of the box at a minimum, but pretty cool the original box is included.

    New never used. No manual and band selector is set for 11 meters good to VG condition at its best! Where is the clear plastic that usually covers the face?

    Hi All, The Radio Is New And Never Used To Transmit But Was On the Shelf For About 2 Months It Was Powered Once When I Bought It Last Year Just To Make Sure It Was Working. The Person That I Got It From is a CB'er And Has Many Of These Radios But Not New Like This. My Original Post Said I Would Prefer To Sell Locally The Reason Is For the Buyer to Inspect The Radio Prior To Paying, I am an Honest Person and Wont Cheat a Fellow Ham, I Have To Go to the Dollar store Today Buy a Feather Duster and Clean The Knobs. Like I Said I Had It On The Shelf To Show Off In My Shack. I Hope I answered your questions. 73s
