if your going to open and make sure all the bags are sealed bring some doughnuts and talk them up bet they'll knock off at least a couple hundred when you have cash in hand

Without being able to see the box, it could be a re-sealed box of junk Lego. Someone could try to use a hair dryer to unseal and just sell you a $1750 box.

 

Of course, anyone could do this with any sealed set, like stephen_rockefeller said this is a set notorious for scams. Be careful.

When you're moving the box around to "check the seals and box condition", try to gently shake it. You should be able to feel something like "books" thumping around vs LEGOs swooshing and plastics bags crackling.

 

$1750 is a great deal, but when you're there with cash, offer him $1600 and see what he says.

I am going to look at the set this weekend, other than the seals is there anything else I can look at to make sure this set is the real deal?  I do not want to break the seals to find out.  Any suggestions, or is it just a $1750 gamble I have to take?  If I cut the seals how much will this affect the value?

Bring a postal scale and weigh it.
