That'd be a dumb mistake for a dealer (they usually look *very* closely 
at what they're buying), but is quite common for plain folks who buy an 
outfit, particularly those who wouldn't know a 1-13 from the *very* rare 3-
47 ultra-high-resolution, super-matte, gold-rimmed one!  :-)



P.S.  Now just watch...  I'llse a 3-47 advertised on e-Bay!  <G>
