I'm going to be purchasing a v1 sometime soon, probably have it shipped to Point Roberts so I can pick it up and bring it across the border into BC.
I'm hoping that I'll only have to pay the 5% sales tax when bringing it across, since it is an American made product and obviously isn't tobacco or alcohol.
I phoned up Valentine research the other day, but the lady who answered couldn't tell me if the actual unit, or the box it comes in says "Made in USA."
I asked if Valentine research could provide a declaration of origin with the shipment, if I went ahead and purchased one, and she wasn't sure about that either.
So. Can anyone tell me if their 3.872 V1 is stamped with "Made in USA" ?
I would hate to have customs think that since it was an electronic device, it was made in China, and charge me 18% duties on top of taxes.
