[Ancientartifacts] www_owito_de - some notes for German users


German dealer www_owito_de ( http://tinyurl.com/5jorky ) doesn't sell
abroad, so this concerns German residents only.

He claims to be a collector of brooches for 40 years and offers some of
them, along with books. I have serious doubts about the authenticity on
some of the pieces in his auction header. One of the books he offers is
written by him:
To me, this appears to be junk. All pieces depicted in the description
have pins, and there is something wrong with the 4th sheet of the first
row. The header of that page says "Germanische Fibeln", but the piece
shown on that page can't be seriously referred to as 'Germanic'. I don't
know exactly what it is, but it bears a resemblance to some Balkan and
Greece finds of the 8th-6th century B.C.

The name of this dealer is a URL that hides behind lines instead of dots
in the name. Visit www.ovito.de and you'll find this shop:

The dealer may have good reasons ... I'd be /very/ careful.
