I have sold a high end set to someone on ebay and they are convinced that I have opened the set. It is a little odd I have to admit but I don't check every tab on every Lego set that I buy for myself or to sell.
The issue is that on 1 of the tabs a second identical sticker has been placed on top of the first sticker (fractionally to the side).
Also the set has 2 different batch numbers on the tabs either side of the box which I have never noticed before on a set. I side has 2 stickers with the number 45S9 and the other side 2 stickers with the number 46S9. I had a live chat with someone from Lego about the number differences and they said it was most likely that the set was part packed in 1 area and then finished off in another area but in the same factory.
The other issue the person has is that when they opened the set 2 of the 3 instructions booklets were inside each other and the other instruction book had the sticker sheet in them.
Whilst they have not openly said it I am basically being accused of opening the set, putting 1 instruction book inside the other, putting the stickers inside the other instruction book and then sealing the set back up. I have somehow then obtained or reproduced and identical Lego factory seal and placed it over 1 of the tabs.
CRAZY SCENARIO I KNOW!
I have built sets of this era where instruction books have been inside each other and not always all of them. The only explanation I can think for the double sticker is that 2 have been placed instead of 1 on the assembly line by mistake (by a machine presumably).
What I would like to know is has anyone every had a double sealed tab (2 stickers on top of each other) or had a set where it has 2 different batch numbers?
No matter what I say this person is adament I have defrauded them which having sold Lego sets for 10 years relatively hassle free is now driving me nuts!
