Re: unacceptable level of radiation.

Ive shipped Railmasters on numerous occasions with no issues. Did you use Fedex or another shipper?

: I have just bought a near 70 year old early Rallymaster from the
: United States through Ebay.
: U.S, Customs have returned to the seller who has replied to me,
: saying

: on the box is a stick-on label that reads "your item was
: reviewed in our processing center and was
: determined to be ineligible to be shipped forward by air to the
: buyer because of an unacceptable level
: of radiation". Really?, it's a watch. That's just nuts. I have
: a meter that would detect radiation, there was none.

: Has anyone come across this idiocy before?
