Terms of Sale

Items are one of a kind unless otherwise stated.

Methods of Payment

Payment to be made in US funds by money orders, bank checks, Western Union wire transfers, or PayPal.  If you wish to pay by PayPal please email me for my PayPal account information.  I do not accept Paypal payments or orders from buyers in Germany and France.  Cash in a registered letter is an acceptable means of payment, however, the buyer assumes all risks if the cash is lost in the mail.

Shipping Costs

The buyer pays all shipping costs.  I ship within the US via the United States Postal Service.  Items are shipped insured for full value.  I can also ship via UPS or FedEx if the buyer prefers.  When the buyer orders an item, I will advise of the total shipping cost, including insurance.  I ship most items the same day payment is received.  Shipment overseas is done via Registered Airmail, however, due to the inability to adequately insure overseas shipments buyer assumes all risk of loss, however the U.S.P.S. does allow me to insure items to certain countries up to certain dollar limitations so please ask if insurance is available for an item sent to your country.

Return Policy

All of my items are guaranteed to be original artifacts unless sold as copies.  I have sold to museums, collectors, and historians.  I offer an unconditional money-back guarantee regarding the originality of an item unless the item is sold as a copy.  Items may be returned within five days after the buyer receives the items for any reason whatsoever.  Items found not to be authentic may be returned after the five day inspection period has expired unless the item is sold as a copy.  Postage and Insurance fees are not refundable.  All returned items should be received in the same condition as sent, I.E. not cleaned, damaged, or altered in any way.


I offer a layaway plan on more expensive items for those interested in paying over time.  Please email with the item you are interested in for layaway information.  No interest will be charged on layaways.  Layaways require at least 20 percent of the purchase price down and the balance payable in 4 to 5 months depending on what the buyer and I agree to.  The down payment is non-refundable if the buyer does not live up to his or her end of the agreement to purchase the item.


Buyer assumes all risk of loss of any item(s) seized by customs.  Buyer assumes responsibility for any duties or tariffs imposed by customs in your destination country.
