How bad is an LE111A refoamed on the wrong side?

I got the seller of the Craig's List L110s to send me a close up of the refoam job. Looks very nice but the surround is attached to the front of the cone. Now I know it looks wrong (and IS wrong), but other than for reasons of purity, will it harm the sound or the speaker? Should I pass? How do you feel it impacts the value of an otherwise nice pair of L110s? Worth a lower offer?
I'm not a re-seller, just a minor collector-wanna-be!
