I saw that too and just shook my head. The Apple II+'s my work ordered years ago had no Cellophane wrapping them, they just had the foam inserts surrounding the computers.

The seller has removed the listing.
I guess someone told them something was amiss. Smile

having worked retail before, once you've operated a shrinkwrap machine (in the back of the store), you lose all respect for shrinkwrap, period.

it at least tells me that we must take a very close second look to things that seem to be "still in shrinkwrap"
and examine for damages beneath the shrinkwrap....
it´s noticable that even old dinosaurs like us learn new things here....
