Hello,

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see images.

If you had already attached images to your initial posting, they are not showing for me here on my end.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

Ok Nora. I am not home at the moment to take a pic and send it to you but I will be a little later. Will I have to pay another $30 to send it later?
Antique Expert: Nora, Expert in Fine and Decorative Arts: Renaissance through Contemporary replied 2 years ago

Hi,

You can send images at your convenience. No rush - there is not a time limit here nor is there an additional charge to add photos later.

Ok, thank you Nora. Is it the condition of the check that you need to see? It's not mint, I know that much lol.

Hi,

It just really helps to actually see the item being assessed in order to give a proper answer.
