would you be concerned?

I ordered a FR85 SICT from nobetterdeal.com a week ago. It came today and I have a few concerns. My main concern is that there is a scuff mark on one of the armrests. I only worry because I am afraid this means someone used it before.

It wasn't in any plastic or anything and the top tether strap was unraveled. Would any of this concern you? I am not sure what is normal or not as this my first FR. The item was an open but resealed item.

I ordered mine from Amazon and when it arrived, it was "sealed" in a plastic bag. I don't remember where the tags were or how the tether arrived. But I remember it arriving brand new.
