Seller: ascot (6,936) 100%, Location: Plymouth, Michigan, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 292006723385 This auction is for a hard to find vintage composition figure of a young black panther. I believe he is the figure numbered as 9 BV2 in the excellent reference book, "Das Lineol Bilderbuch Band 4", on pages 41 and 45. They list him as being quite rare, based on an equally rare white tiger model. He measures about 2.75 inches long. In the last picture I show a him with a 2.5 inch tall Vertunni figure for size reference only, the Vertunni is not included in this auction. Please check out my store for more vintage toys and out of print books about vintage toys. I combine shipping on multiple purchases. Payment: All buyers, per eBay policy I can only accept PayPal as a payment method for all auctions. Payment is due within 4 days from the end of the auction. If your payment is not received in this time period then the automated eBay unpaid assistant takes over. If you need longer to pay just let me know. Handling time: I do my best to mail packages out the day after I get payment. If I receive payment before 9:00 P.M. Eastern Standard Time (U.S.) I will have it in the mail the next day, except for Sunday because U.S. Post Offices are not open on Sunday. U.S. Shipping: I use First Class (up to 13 oz) and Priority mail after that. Books ship media mail. I only charge actual postage - no added fees. I combine multiple items won by the same person the same day and charge actual postage. If you're looking to buy other items not ending yet just let me know and I'll hold the shipment to combine them for you. I use lots of bubble wrap and peanuts and good boxes. In a group of multiple pieces each item is wrapped individually. When there is an original box or other original paper item I put that into a plastic bag in case you get delivery on a rainy day. International Shipping: I gladly ship international. First Class International is available up to 4 pounds in weight, after that it has to be Priority mail which is expensive. Please note that there can be lengthy delays at Customs. Per eBay rules, import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges -- these charges are the buyer's responsibility. Return Policy: Returns are accepted within 30 days, so long as item is returned in the condition that it was in when it was sold. If the item was misrepresented I will refund the postage both ways. If the item was not misrepresented, I will refund the purchase price only -- not the shipping paid to get it to you, or for you to return it. I use a loupe to examine the toys while I'm listing them, and I try and mention the significant condition issues that I can see. I value my eBay reputation and I am not knowingly going to put out false or misleading info on a toy -- if I'm wrong about a fact about the toy I'll refund your money. I leave feedback, so please do the same. If there is any problem with the item, contact me first, before leaving feedback, and we’ll work it out. Condition: Used, Condition: As the pictures show, this panther is in very good condition. It does have light paint wear to the high spots (like ear tips and some areas on his back). I don't see any cracks or repairs on him. Please consult the pictures, as they are an important part of the auction description.
