Coticule love... show off your rock

Link? I didn’t see it.
 
They are in for a big disappointment... I feel more for the sellers usually because most have no clue and get the drama thrown on their lap by undereducated buyers once they are made aware
 
If I may ask, please educate me. Being I do do zero stone sales on eBay, was there misrepresentation in the sale of a double sided sharpening stone. If this a buyer, who thinks it’s a Coti, but purchased s sharpening stone as advertised and got such gets cold feet, does buyer have recourse
 
He shouldn't but ebay is garbage at protecting sellers...I have a simple policy, you play games I block you forever and nothing gets you off the ebay @#$% list
 
This was a double dose of unexpected discovery. While rehabilitating after my hip replacement, I been cruising the local internet classified site. Found a bad picture of a stack of stones. Asked for a picture and was a bunch of junk except for a wood box. “What in the box” I ask and received this picture. 1st unexpected discovery

Yeaaaaaaaaaah, I think I will take that. Some negotiations and the package arrived today. Unpacked, looked like a typical 6” stone, not bad, nothing special, I do something with it. Outside to the lapping table we go. Start out and realize it is already very flat, cool, low mileage. Lap I bit more, first rinse, what do we got here??!!?!

Holly Crap On A Cracker! Second unexpected discovery. Glad I stopped, I feel like a goon but had no idea it was there. Double checked the before picture and no sign of a stamp. Unfortunately I can not read anything, but a saved some of the stamp. On a side note, put out in the sun to dry off and it is one of the more sparkly stones I had I a while. The garnet are poking there head up into the Florida sun. Glad to be out of the dark box

I picked up this Barber Size 2x4 inch Old Rock awhile back. Cleaned up a bit, it looks very nice. I haven't had a chance to rub a razor on it yet..





Nice one. All of the old rocks one had in that style box have been really good.
