While Dmitry Gindin will attempt to be as diligent as possible, he cannot guarantee that his initial impression or preliminary opinion from the photos provided, would either constitute his final opinion of the instruments thus presented to him, nor that such an opinion would be the same or as detailed as he may form if he were to examine the instrument in person. He will not therefore be held responsible or liable for any eventual errors, damage or losses resulting from his initial examination through this Online Identification process.
