Hi James,
My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your pieces of silver. They sound beautiful and quite special.
If you are sending photos by email, the only address that gets to me is: ***@******.***
I work 'on' rather than 'for' the site as an independent appraiser so all communications have to go through a third party and it can take up to 24 hours for emails to be sent on to me. However I will let you know as soon as I receive them.
Alternatively, you can get images to me instantly by uploading them to
and clicking on "Upload Images" (then follow three easy steps)
and give me the link they give you so I can use it to go to where you put the photos on
Hope this makes sense.
Best wishes,
