Found this bar first on the FB Market....messaged the seller and they indicated that they had just sold it to a junk shop that resells items... great. That shop then listed it on fleabay for a higher price (of course). I made that seller an offer, calling them out on the price gouging. They made an agreeable counter offer so I ask that they professionally package it knowing I'll likely never find another if it is damaged.

Le sigh... as seen below the seller self packaged and only used 3/4" FIRM styrofoam for protection, so inevitably it arrived smashed. Messaged the seller several times to attempt and get resolve and they didn't respond, so fleabay dispute it was. Miraculously they responded to that in 90 seconds flat giving me a line about not seeing my request about packaging, not seeing my messages about it arriving damaged...yada yada yada. Thankfully, they were remorseful and did refund me (I was pleasantly surprised).

Today I took the painfully long time to piece it back together as best as I could. It'll do for now; I already created a wanted ad for a new dome if anyone has one. This has a property tag for Orleans Levee Board and came from Louisiana. I don't know any history beyond that. Pretty bare bones bar, that is original and unmolested. Still has the Federal TS100 as well. No video yet, but I will update once I take one.

Opening the box after hearing unsettling noises carrying it in:

Seriously, I go out of my way to pack items well to avoid this from happening.
Good luck finding a replacement, I'll keep my eyes open and report if I find anything.. never know.

I do the same. It was gut wrenching opening it and finding it that way. I'm fortunate it was only the one dome that had damage. The rest miraculously survived. I appreciate you watching for a dome.

It's not a total loss thankfully, which is what many rare bars become after careless packaging. I don't know why it's so difficult for sellers to get things professionally packaged, it's not like they're paying for it.

Too bad the S&W domes wont work as a replacement. Kinda neat how even back then they blacked out the tops....
