Hi there,

I've just bought my very first Curat type 1 from ebuy.
It is dated mid 1948 (4XXX).

The seller told me that is is in a good working condition... but he was lying!

Once I got it, I found out that the curta is stuck and doesn't work.

What shall I do???

The seller told me that if I send it back to him, he will refund me the money (but only after he will get it back)... But I afraid that he will not fully refund me for and still I need to pay the shiping and the import costs (~200 usd )... I'm realy depressed Crying or Very sad
I can also try to send it to Italy for inspection ... but I don't know wheter it can repaired and what will be the costs...and if it will be economic wise...

I don't know what to do!

I highly appriciate your advise

Firstly it would be good to see some photographs of this early Curta and canister.

If it were me I would get a quote for a service and seek a partial refund from the eBay seller.
