I told the seller via message and wrote "poorly packaged" in the feedback section and went about my business. Great cymbal fwiw, if the crimp negatively affects the sound, then it's a better ear than mine who'll pick it up.
... and that was boxed.

Maybe the post office should keep a supply of unwanted Pitch Blacks and ZBTs to sell to eBayer drummers needing simbolle protectors for postage? Frisbees would probably do the job for splashes.
