Hi Arend agree with you to a point some of the members are expert!! For example Tim-shabtis, Ernie - all Egyptian items Rolf- all Egyptian items and a lot more dealers who really know there artifacts, but I do feel that some are being as you say pathologically shouting fake,  I learn a lot from this group but some times my head spins at what is good and what isn't, the danger here is by accusing a seller of dealing in fakes you are in some cases   depriving dealers of earning money, I still maintain there are grey areas where a seller may not be aware that they are selling a fake.   Chris

Reading the mail exchange in Ancientartifacts now for the past few days I am getting convinced that most contributors are pathologically inclined to call everything --FAKE-- No one bothers to specify what makes them think so; not even when repeatedly invited to do so. I have decided to further ignore this bunch of self-declared experts though I will continue reading their comments as they are, sometimes at least, quite hilarious. You for one proved my point.

Hi All,

Just a quick message as a follow up to my dealings with the ebay
seller ancientgifts. Now a few months ago I purchased a roman
intaglio from this seller and was delighted with the product until I
read some of the poor reviews that the guy has been getting of late.
I decided to get a second opinion of the intaglio from one of my
fellows on this site, and was natrualy slightly peeved to find that
the opoinion was, that the item is fake.

Well I feel I must let you all know that since then I have taken the
intaglio to a national roman museaum and it has been examined by the
expert in such items and just come back to me as totally genuine. I
feel that it is worth mentioning this as it would seem our freind
from Ancientgifts is getting an awful lot of bad press, now I wonder
if it is all justified?

One thing I can tell you is that when I had firstly found the item
was maybe fake? I did contact ancient gifts, and he was absolutely
adamant that it is genuine. I recieved pages of mail and info from
the the end he offered full money back if I was still not
satisfied. What was really impressive is that the expert at the
museaum came up with the same date and iconography as the seller, I
have not just jumped to a conclusion here I have done my own research.

Happy Hunting
