Floor Sweepings from eBay

Ordered 100 stainless steel M3 washers from a “US Seller”, received this:

M3 stainless steel washers - short count
M3 stainless steel washers – short count

Yeah, it looked a bit short to me, too.

The chopped and bent washers in the upper right corner suggest the seller got floor sweepings from his source, which is about what you’d expect for a bottom-dollar vendor.

The seller refunded half, which wasn’t particularly generous, but I wasn’t ready to go to the mat for two bucks.
