I have had a few questions about the reserve and shippingso here it is. Reserve is set at a modest $240 Dollars and shipping will be actual based upon location plus about $5.00 for box and packing materials. UPS is usually the best but I will ship just about anyway winner chooses. I will consider ending sale early with pre arranged agreement andconfirmed payment through paypal.
Hope this helps.
