I wouldn't feel guilty by the naysayers who say we are 'nitpickers' at all. I believe in honesty, and as an originality nut and restorer, I strive to know, am proud to know, I have done my homework, on what is and isn't a correct, original part. Ignorance is one thing but trying to deceive the buying crowd is another. By pointing out the faults, we are dong any potential buyers a favor as they probably don't know either. As a buyer, one should do the grunt work to verify what he is really getting into. Just listing something as 'all original' doesn't just make it so. Because dad's 9N had a Krinchmeyer Knob on it when he had it doesn't make it original, right?
