Rogue OPB in the Boneyard $195 Bare Steel

As of now, they're still in stock if you're in the market for another bar. Just picked up another one...I don't see the bare steel ones hit the boneyard very often. My first boneyard bar arrived and I couldn't spot the flaw, so hopefully I get as lucky on this one.

When you guys buy a barbell online or from a store how is it normally shipped? Does it come open or does it come boxed up? I ordered a bar from Titan and it got delivered finally and it's just open to the elements and that doesn't seem right.
