Hello,
Below is a description from the Certificate of Antiquity that came with the item I bought but I still know very little about what it really is or worth. It reads as follows:

Do you have a ph. number I can text some pic's to? I can't get the pics to my laptop so they are stuck on my phone for now.
I need to send them from my phone. Sorry.

Hi,You can email your images to***@******.*** and write “ForCustomerAntiques” in the subject line of the email.Photos sent by email do not arrive to me directly nor instantly, they get forwarded to me by administrators, so thank you in advance for some patience when sending this way.

I just sent 5 pics from my phone. I can't email them. The pics are on my phone and I am not able to transfer to my laptop. I can only send in a text message from my iPhone.

There is no place for you to text photos to, so I do not know how you texted them but I will not get them.I am not allowed to give out any of my personal information (telephone number) so you would not be able to text to me.If you can read your emails on your phone, then you should be able to email the photos that are on your phone to***@******.*** you be able to do that?
