Hello,

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see images and clear, in-focus close-ups of the mark

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.

Please let me know and do you have requested images available?

I look forward to reading back from you.

Sincerely,

Nora
