Reselling abbreviation and opening boxes to confirm contents
I gave this a little bit of thought and I didn't find a thread exactly like it so I thought I would present this thought. I know it has happened to people when they open boxes that they are missing contents or someone ripped off a package and cleverly concealed the resealing of a box. While I don't want to sell a set and claim it is MISB or NIB or Unopened and have that not be true, it is possible unless the contents are confirmed. I've heard of people receiving sets that have been opened through vendors like Amazon.com. Much like MISB = Mint In Sealed Box or NIB = New In Box is there any slang out there for 'box opened only to confirm contents so neither of us get cheated in this transaction?' I don't think personally a set should be worth less if it is cleanly opened to have the contents verified and all the actual bags are still sealed and all other contents undisturbed. I understand it is no longer unopened, but the risks or inconveniences a person runs if a claim is opened up that stuff is missing from the box doesn't seem worth the hassle either. I would suggest a new slang word is created to fit in a title to tell people this for example BOCC = Box Opened to Confirm Contents. Just a thought.
