Hello

You will need to have this artifacts appraised in person by a certified appraiser, this is not something that can be done online, there are many items you have here that would need to be inspected and dated by the appraiser before a value can be obtained. I can help get an appraiser in your area you can contact if you like?

I am having the items analyzed by the XRF method which will authenticate them due to the characteristics of the alloy.

Thanks for the advice but you haven't provided me with any information about the relics, not worth $40 to me.

Hi

I was not giving you information, I was telling you that this would have to be looked at by an appraiser in person. I was offering to help you get a list of appraisers you could take this to.

Glenda, forget about it. I was hoping for information about the relics. I already have contacted Artemis Testing Lab in Louisville, CO for XRF analysis, the two samples I sent arrived yesterday.
Perhaps I was too vague in my inquiry.
I was hoping for"these are relatively rare and some similar pieces can be found here"..."these types of chariot fittings have sold for this amount" or maybe " I don't know much about this particular type of antique but here is someone who does" which sounds a lot like your reply. Just don't think there was $40 worth of information or advice. I'll ask better questions in the future, thank you
