[Ancientartifacts] Re: 'Good' Seller with poor COA

I should just clarify. My "Then you have a clear case of misdescribed
goods" was in response to Stephen's belief that the restoration was on
an area of the pot that was not mentioned in the COA; in other words,
*if* Stephen's belief is correct. I was commenting purely on the wording
of the COA, not on the method of detection.

It remains to be seen whether Stephen's belief is correct or not.
