Let me tell you a story ...
Someone buys a new camera and decides that it really needs a battery grip.
That same someone then goes and does a little research and HOLY HELL, OEM battery grips are damned expensive. So they start thinking about third-party grips. A little more research later and there's a good second-hand battery grip going for a very reasonable price, so they decide to bite the bullet and drop a little cash on this second-hand, third-party grip.
Cut to today when delivery was received and the box opened and OH MY GOD it's actually a brand new, OEM battery grip, together with all specific OEM bits and pieces!
Receiver of such purchase immediately checks bank balance to see if they have been charged for OEM purchase ... nope.
Checks receipt in the box, listed as second-had, third-party item with third-party price.

That someone in the story? That's ME!! (8+D

It's a nice feeling. (8+)
I'm wondering if I was lucky enough to get a disgruntled employee and they decided to make my day by sending me off the original Nikon kit.
I'm certainly not complaining about it.
