[Ancientartifacts] Re: Guide to Responsible Collecting - Working on Point (8)

For a piece which I aquired a few years ago...an Egyptian Mummy Mask,
I now believe it to be fake. I believe this because I can't find
any information about the dealer who issued the COA, the price i paid
at the time was too low compared to similiar pieces I've seen, I
purchased it off of ebay (large percentage of fakes, so doubting I
got lucky), comments from people on this group agree that more than
likely its fake, and the wood doesn't seem old enough. My plan for
the item if I'm 100% convinced its fake is to put something on the
back of it and hang it on the wall for decoration. The problem is I
worry about, what if its real? So, before putting something in the
back of it, I plan to have someone look at in person and give me a
more definitive yes or no, but I highly believe its fake.
