The seller bought these cabs from a warehouse that suffered water damage. The wood parts have mold on them and the metal has rust. The seller does the absolute minimum to get the cab working. Half of the cabs that he sold arrived DOA (NNCs excluded).

Also, the shipping price is just to the port closest to you. Depending on where you live the costs from the port to your door can be an additional 200-500 USD.

The dent on the right side is what would bug me the most.
Im running games with a vga to tv converter on my Shangai Novel, with composite and it looks amazing, Im not interested in RGB or Scart.

Hm, the second one looks pretty decent to me, I've seen far, far worse (MT-8). Original screen too with nice geometry. The whole thing is way sexier than any Sega candy (apart from the Aero).
I'd be tempted.
