It is up to you to review the items. So, if you have changed your address and or moved. It is NOT our responsibility, so dont take it out on our company if you have not updated your information.
If you are a regular customer of ours and we have your information and billing CC information on file, some acceptations will be made. Artifacts, COAs and item information. All artifacts and items are legally obtained. We aim to provide the most current information about items. We are all human, not perfect and dont know everything.
We are ALL always learning new information. So, if there is additional information that you can provide us, it would be helpful. COAs are offered on some items.
KJs COAs some of our artifacts, Autographs & other collectables. Please do note that COAs offered by us and other authenticators are our own opinion about the item being COAed. With over 25 years of experience and information from other collectors and authenticators we achieve this information.
If we feel that an item is a reproduction, we will note this or not sell this item. These terms are implemented to not only to protect honest buyers but our company as well.
This is NOT a retail store! Most items are used, vintage and collectable. We have to implement these policies in place for the dishonest buyers that take advantage of the system. We by all means do not know everything but we try to provide you with the most information we can by collecting data from the internet, books, archeologists/historical groups & other collectors.
We are always more and happy to answer any questions, so ask questions. However, inadequate or just plain ignorant questions WILL NOT be responded to. We try to point out all the flaws as best as possible. We are NOT going to cover items with a fine-tooth comb. This means if there is a small chip, paint imperfection or any other flaws we didnt see or cant see.
It is not up to us to be a quality inspection specialist. Come on, these are vintage items.
If an item is electronic, we will disclose if it works, has a possible problem or hasnt been tested. We ARE NOT the manufacture of these items. So, we do not have the background and ability in repairing electronics, most vintage and new items, if we dont specialize in this. Our goal is to provide you with the grading quality of the items to the best of our knowledgeable opinion and tell you everything we can that may be possibly wrong with the item. I do have the knowledge in identifying reproductions, approximate time periods and consulting with other collectors and dealers in providing the most adequate information possible.Some of the artifacts were personal finds in Ohio, PA, Kentucky and Indiana. I DO NOT take kindly to reproductions. Reproductions are ruining the market for collectors like us that enjoy this hobby. You MUST provide written proof of your documented findings and how this piece may be a reproduction before sending item back.
This means if the item is damaged or reknapped or altered in any way, we will NOT accept your return. We have had some buyers give their opinion and note that artifacts need mineralization in all flints found. This proves to be true in some of the much older pieces that have been in the ground longer but I have personally found items that I have not only inspected myself but had certified collectors with 50+ years experience inspect that say NOT all artifacts will have mineralization in them. It can also depend upon flint used as well.So please be sure to have these pieces inspected by a certified collector, if you are in question? We would be more and happy to cover additional details/questions about items and findings. ALL of our items are a piece of history. By NO means should history be erased.
This is the past and we shale look on to it and learn from it. Not try to destroy it or take it as offensive. So if it offends you and you dont like history. Then we recommend a different hobby.
