Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.
I make a lot of typos because I am not used to typing. I want to make sure I have your question correctly.
You gave 8 cups each decorated with a different German city. They all have the number 800 on the underside.
There is also a shot cup with 835 on the underside.
An I correct? If so, please send me a photo of one or your cups showing its city.
Then I need a clear photo of the marks on the bottom.
You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo.
If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the mark and take a photo of the sketch.
To send photos you may use the "attach" or "add" link or paper clip you see on your reply page.
If none is there, then you may use the free internet photo site
imgur.com Use the following instructions:
Go to http://www.imgur.com
a. Click "Computer"
b. Find the photo file on your computer that you want to send
c. Click open on the file
d. You will see a Start Upload link on the imgur.com page.
Click on it
e. Your image will appear on the screen
f. Highlight and copy the address link under Direct Link
to the right on the imgur page
g. Paste that link into your reply box on Just Answer
I also need the height of your shot sups.
I look forward to your reply.
Kind regards,
Doris

Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 1 year ago.
JA does not use cell phone numbers.
You need to be signed into JA on your computer to use the methods I describe above.
From your phone, you need to use the email method. Please know that it can take up to 24 hours for me to receive photos via the email method.
Here are the instructions but they must be followed exactly.
This is the official explanation of how to send photos via email:
Send the picture to,***@******.***
In the subject line put " Pictures for˜Doris in Antiques or Appraisals."
.
In the body of the message put, your user name and name.
.
Make sure to send these from the same address that you registered with
just answer,so they can verify who you are.
This method takes longer because the photos are sent to the Just Answer
techs who must forward them to me.
.
They will forward them to me and as soon as I get them I will contact you.
Kind regards,
Doris
