To Harlan, regarding art deco Kodak cameras...

No problem, it's all good!

Name: David Silver Source: unca20070808.htm Hi Harlan, No worries, it really is me, not somebody "phishing" or working a scam.

Name: David Silver Source: unca20070325.htm Rob, You haven't given us much to go on here. I'm sure the non-writers on the forum will jump in with comments (in the spirit of our host) to go fight with the "client", stand up for yourself, go toe to toe with the jerk, etc. Others might chime in about ...
