My name isCustomerand I would love to help. There were no pictures that came with your question (the site has been having an issue).
Please use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures (again, if you already have) of the item and any marks, labels or writing.

I read that the charge for valuating the Bovano piece would be $5. However, I have been informed by CitiBank that an additional $34 has been tacked on my credit card. I am disputing the $34. I have received no answer from you as to a value and will not authorize the $34.

You did not give me a chance to answer, I have not yet received photos of your item and I need to see pictures before I can evaluate

with accuracy. Let me know if you will be able to add photos.
