Why do you think so? How do you know this, if you received it from an individual with a story? Again, how do you know this, and how do you know it was 'crappy" and should never have been, and that it lowered the value? Is it not just as feasible, that the piece was switched out, if you have absolutely determined the piece in the flip is of inferior quality? Your photos are suspect, as to whether the piece is as shown.
