Seller: first-out ✉️ (64,158) 99.9%, Location: Cleveland, OH, US, Ships to: WORLDWIDE, Item: 375281108492 F Original Slide - D&H 19 ALCO PA Action w/ MBTA Pass Cars Boston MA 1978.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON SHIPPING - Feb 2024 Over the last couple of months, the Post Office has been EXTREMELY slow in delivering First Class Mail.  According to customers, some orders have been taking 3 or more weeks to reach their destinations.  Due to this, please allow for some extra time for your items to arrive. Thanks. Original Kodachrome Slide


Up for bid is a single, original 35mm Kodachrome slide.  Each image is shown below using a low-resolution scan that does not reflect true quality of the slide.  All slides are well-exposed and the sharpness can be determined from the scan.  Also, if the slides have any scratches, they can be seen in the scans as well.  The other specs/lines are small dust particles or lint.  Please feel free to email with any specific questions.  Also, I am sorry, but I do not sell prints or scans (of any resolution) of the slides.

NOTE on FOREIGN ORDERS:  Effective 6-1-2020.  There have been numerous issues with foreign slide orders reaching their destinations.  I am assuming this is a result of the pandemic that is currently going on.  I cannot be responsible for orders once they are deposited into the mail system as I do not have any control over those items.  I will no longer be issuing refunds for orders that do not arrive to foreign destinations.  If you would like to bid, you will have to assume the risk or purchase tracking...which is approximately $14.00.  You are also responsible for any duties/etc.  By bidding on items on/after 6-1-2020, you agree to this policy.  Any deviation will result in being blocked from bidding on any future auctions.  I am sorry to have to do this, but after issuing several refunds in the last 30 days, I have no choice.  It is really hard to believe how many people cannot comprehend that I do NOT have any control over the postal service/s.

NOTE on REFUND POLICY:  As always has been in effect:  I offer 100% satisfaction guaranteed.  If you are not happy with your purchase, please contact me.  I will make arrangements for you to return your item/s that you are not happy with.  Payment will be refunded upon receipt of the item/s.  I recently had a customer leave negative feedback about me "altering" color of an image.  It's obvious from the other 50+K feedback that I don't alter color of images.  I immediately contacted him and offered 100% refund on his purchase upon return of the item.  He never responded...so I assume he disliked the slide so much that he wanted to keep it!  I then thought more about it and ended up refunding his payment in full because I certainly did not want to leave a customer stuck with something he didn't want....and.....I told him to keep the slide.  Once again, not a single reply.  To me, this was a simple case of buyer's remorse!  In any event there is always a good thing from something bad....I realized I needed to put the refund policy directly into my item description as it is hard to find under Ebay's return page.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you are not happy with your purchase.

NOTE REGARDING COPYRIGHT/ IMAGE USE:  Any slides taken by myself and/or by Frank Novak are released to you to do as you wish.  The only condition is to give proper credit to the photographer.    For slides taken by other photographers, use the following guideline:

"As pertains to images / slides taken by any other photographer and offered for sale by Seller, Seller makes no representation as to the copyright status of the image / slide sold or otherwise transferred to Buyer, but it is noted that a copyright may exist solely by operation of law and that therefore Buyer is advised to contact the named photographer of the image prior to copying or re-copying or making other use of said image / slide."  - (A thanks goes to seller PDXRR for him allowing use of this statement for my auction description).

I have purchased slides from a number of photographers and sources and have, in many cases, obtained permission to use the images for publication/etc.  In those cases, a high-res scan will be retained.  I am reserving the right to publish, print, sell duplicates, and/or scans of these images.  Some of the slides being sold have been scanned by magazines and held for use for future publication.  I place no restrictions on what you do with the slide once you purchase it, other than to give the original photographer credit (industry standard), following the guidelines listed above.  I will not answer any other questions regarding copyrights. I spent the time and money to consult with a copyright attorney and these statements are based on the advice of that meeting.


Shipping is FREE for US addresses (First-class mail ONLY)!  Priority and Express Mail are available for the fee listed.  I will also ship to foreign countries for $1.50 for standard shipping in an envelope.   Items will be shipped within 5 BUSINESS days of payment (I usually try to ship by Thursday).  NOTE that Priority and Express are options offered by the USPS and this does not mean we ship your order any faster (again, in most cases it's Thursdays).  If you need your item right away, please contact me and I will try to accomodate.  All of this is done to try to keep shipping costs down to be able to offer FREE shipping to US addresses. 

For orders under $50, slides are sent in an envelope with trifold cardstock and the slide is protected in either a coin envelope or clear plastic sleeves.  For orders over $50, slides are sent in padded envelopes between cardboard.   IMPORTANT!  If you want your slide packed any other way, please choose "Priority Mail" or "Express Mail" for shipping....if not...your order is going to be sent as described above.  If you would like tracking on your package, I can do so for $3.00 for items mailed to US addresses.  As indicated above, most slides are sent out in a standard envelope, and I cannot put tracking on those.  The $3.00 will cover the cost of a stay-flat envelope and tracking label that will have to be used in place of the standard shipping method. 

***********EFFECTIVE 5-1-19*********** - It has recently come to my attention that orders are taking long periods of time to reach their destinations.   I spoke with our local Postmaster who indicated this has been happening due to them recently closing 275 sorting centers.  This has resulted in extreme delays as I have had orders take 2-3 weeks to get to the customer.  Please take this information into consideration if your item has not shown up.  Due to this, refunds will only be issued if the item has not arrived within 30 days of shipping.  I do offer the tracking option for $3.00 and suggest you take advantage of that.  Please request an invoice if you'd like tracking on an order under $50 in value.  Once I drop a letter in the mail, I do not have any control over how long it takes.  I have mixed up orders in the past or have also missed sending orders here and there, and in those cases I will take full responsibility and rectify the situation.  My only other option is to raise prices and ship all items with tracking.  I am trying to avoid that, but if the rash of delays/etc continues, I will have no choice.  Thank you!


Payments must be made by Paypal as per Ebay rules.  Please make payment within 10 days of the auction close.  If you need additional time to pay, please contact me.  If I don't receive payment or communication by the 11th day, I will file a non-paid dispute as a reminder.   I am easy to work with, but you have to communicate. 


Ebay collects (and remits) sales tax for respective states that require it. 


I leave feedback after the auctions, but it may take a while.  The first priority is to ship your items in a timely manner.  I get to feedback as time allows and I definitely will leave it for each transaction, but please be patient.  Please do not send email after email asking for feedback to be left, as those will go to last on the list. 

Thanks for looking and happy bidding!
