Hi Dustin,

My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help. Not sure what your question is. Do you want to know how to sell these items?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Not really. It would have to be a FBI collector I assume. I do not even know how these items would be appraised.

I do want to sell these items.

What information do you want from me?

Please note I am unable to do live phone conversations because I can't do the research and talk to you at the same time. I will not send a message to you asking for a phone call. If you get a message asking to do a phone call, this is not from me. It is an automated message from elsewhere.
There is also an additional charge for phone calls, and I can answer your question here at no additional charge. Please let me know how you want to proceed.
