    Default Caveat emptor on this Escher

    Look at this:

    Is there a crack running straight thru the hone?

    I'll ask the seller but thought I had to warn you guys. In your excitement of having a chance to own an Escher it is easily overlooked.

    I hope this is the right place tp post this, if not please move this thread to where it belongs.

    Seller sent me additional pictures to prove it is not a crack. He says it is a rut on the back side of the hone.

    Doesn't this look like a brick?

    it is the back side of the hone. I was a bit surprised myself that the back of the hone did not have a label like most Eschers. Often the back of an Escher is not polished.
