I have a 1642 bank loan document I am trying to get

Customer Question

Hello. I have a 1642 bank loan document I am trying to get appraised. I first contact Mr Bennett at the Smithsonian he referred me or a company in London that translates for them as well as Christies, Sotheby's and others.
I have received the translation from old Italian to English. Do you have someone on your staff that is qualified in old Italian documents? Thank you, Brian

I received images, however the document does not appear to be 17th century. The paper would have to be laid paper for that time period.
