[Ancientartifacts] casa di roma...again

Hello group,

Couldn't anyone advice?
Here is the dealers'list of casa di roma


It looks like a museum has been opened or an ancient antiques dealer
has decide to offer all his roman objects for allmost nothing.
I cannot prove his listings are false but I do have a strange feeling
about most objects.The pictures aren't that sharp but show details
and different points of view. The determination isn't allways
correct: he mixes up greek and celtic brooches but if that was the
only thing to bother?
They are too good. Allmost all brooches have needles and look as they
are digged up yesterday and just weren't cleaned enough, the patina's
are all the same (well done or just good). I counted 115(!!)different
brooches with good stylish characteristics.All brooches do have
needles and that's the point I'm getting suspicious about the most:
some needles look very much the same to me, just if they were
attached last week and all of them have 'really' forged and squared
edges.They are sometimes too big and sometimes too bad. The Hoddhill
brooches do have needles that seem to be restored all. There is no
problem with restoration if it's mentioned.
Casa di Roma has an adress, a return policy and seems to be a dealer
to be trusted???
I posted this question earlier but didn't get much response.
His listings are frequented by other sellers and different buyers.
His auction prices never get very high. His listings are irregular
and certainly not very frequent.
Prices between 20 and 30 euro (30-45 US dollars)are a rule for the
greater part of his brooch sellings.Does he 'give them away' or is
every dollar too much?
I don't know anything about coins so I am hesitating to judge about
his coin offers.
I'm merely interested in brooches and would like to have a honest
opinion of some experts.
Thank you for all the reactions!!
