Here is an eBay sale using the description right from wikiboombox website for the C100-F. At least they're not using a picture of Caution's C100-F and my Gold C100-F box picture like the one eBay sale

You can file a claim someplace that the description was stolen from other place

looks like a very complete GOLD model -

that is quite rare

 

or maybe just that lighting gives it the gold tint ?

is the sensor black ?

I'm pretty sure the gold conion has a different color backing on the tuner scale.

His entire description was copied & pasted from wikiboombox, and unless I missed it, nothing is said at all about the item he himself is selling.

This is pretty common behavior. In fact people copy from Radio Museum more often than they copy from WikiBoombox.  I guess they feel that the number of transistors and capacitors is somehow useful information.  :lol:

I guess this wouldn't be the first time someone has plagiarised your write ups, Reli.
I've read up a lot of your write ups.. They are very good and can see why it's gets used

You can say that again!  Zero feedback so no reputable selling track record and straight in with a high value item with a plagiarised description whilst ignoring any mention of the box's real condition.  Some ne'er do wells try to beef up a zero/low feedback score by buying a several very low value items from separate sellers to hoodwink the naive.

You are correct sir.

Gold C100 has black dial glass background. Also the sensor power button is black and yellow for the Gold version vs blue and yellow for the Silver C100. Then there is obviously the color variance :-)
