yes -- it was the pig. i emailed the seller after the auction
(i was an unsuccessful bidder), and he offered to sell it to me for $400 -- which he claimed was the unmet reserve. i have had a few exchanges about the watch since, and he seems like an alright guy. he either doesn't know much about military watches, or is affecting a know-little air to enhance his credibility. my guess is that the $400 would probably net a decent watch. as for selling without scans, i do it all the time (sold two mark XIs this way in the past year!). it can work if you have a good feedback profile. i also am willing to send faxed photos or even snail mail photos. i just don't have a scanner!
