I am making the following request:

http://open.api.ebay.com/shopping?appid=<appid>&version=575&siteid=0&callname=FindHalfProducts&ProductID.type=ISBN&ProductID.value=0307387895&IncludeSelector=Details

And I get the same item twice in my response as below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

Summary  

Currently, the call returns the same item twice in the response to indicate the item condition and whether it is used or new.  In a future proejct, we are looking at improving the response so that the same item is not returned twice in the response.
