Total of (5) replacement needles, I got them before Pfanstiehl went weird or out of business.
Then had to get some other new companies replacements but did not fit cartridges very well at all. Made inferior from the original Pfanstiehl, cheaper and inaccurately made plastic housing.
Unfortunately the retail package has been discolored or blemished some spray that dulled the package. Not all of them are real bad, but all don't look that good either.
These are new, never mounted, just old (NOS) new old stock.
When I bought them from a distributor needles are known as a final sale no matter what the reason.The same applies here, absolutely no refund, no return, and that IS the industry standard for needles. However you can examine them under a microscope you will see a clean unworn diamond stylus, they are all new and unused.
