OK, a follow-up to this...
First, I went ahead and closed on this set in the eBay ad. Electronic Express will deliver the set in the next day or so. Well, not quite. I got to the warehouse and inspected the set. The set powered on just fine but there seemed to be a defect that was pretty noticeable. Specifically there seemed to be a foreign substance like an adhesive or something stuck to the glass toward the top of the set running about 18 inches across. It was pretty obvious and probably the reason why the original owner turned the set down. And it wouldn't wipe off. This set probably needs to be returned to LG.
But there was a second open box 65E6P in the warehouse and I got an opportunity to look at that. The second set didn't seem to have any obvious flaws, the picture fired up nicely and everything looked in order. The set had a May 2016 manufacture so it had been in their system awhile. But there were no hours on the set so it was literally brand new. The firmware was also pretty old....3.x.x. But nothing that can't be updated.
Electronic Express admitted they probably low-balled the set too much since they said if I wasn't going to buy it, the price was going back to $2999. But there was a snag. I had hoped to take advantage of the 36 month same as cash deal currently on the President's Day for they wouldn't do that for open box stuff. So we ended up doing a 6 months SAC deal....not what I had hoped but still ok.
In the end including tax, the whole deal was not much less than doing it from iElectric or Echo&Optics with no sales tax, but I have 5 days to return the set if there are no problems and a year warranty from an authorized dealer. In the end, it was still a good day.
