I only buy certain ancient artifacts, if they meet these criteriae:
1. The item must be owned legally, having been exported from its country of origin prior to 1970 and the UNESCO treaty.
2. Paperwork, documentation, auction records, receipts or official export documents must be provided.
Artifacts from these countries are especially restricted,
and absolutely no exceptions will be made to the above criteriae:
Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Cyprus, Syria, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Peru, all other Latin American countries, all other Arab and UAE countries, any country suffering political unrest, looting or cultural property protection issues.
* I do not do free appraisals of artifacts or collections. My time is extremely limited and I am usually found juggling multiple tasks and projects entirely on my own here. My apologies for this.
