Default Re: 1920s Grebe radio 'restricted' by ebay Global Shipping Programme

It was the first vintage radio I've bought from the US, and Grebe of course not one you find in the UK often. Looks like it will be the last such purchase for me, as I'm not taking the risk again.

The upsetting aspect of this is the inability to communicate with someone to find out exactly what happened, just an inflexible 'no reply' corporate email. They won't even return to seller in the US from the GSP US facility. The radio is to be destroyed, or perhaps will turn up at an auction somewhere eventually. If the valves are the issue, why can't they be removed?

Just imagine all the precious, irreplaceable items that are being destroyed? Corporate cultural vandalism.
