Dynasty soldier with authentic certificate which states it…

Customer Question
Tang dynasty soldier with...

Tang dynasty soldier with authentic certificate which states it is 1350 years old issued by Hong Kong university Prof.M YmTao in excellent condition

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I was given this article by an extradinary wealthy Asian for saving him around 2 miiion dollars in a property negotiation, the deal was a very complex one,and criminal charges resulted, I made no charge for my services, the Asian gentleman gave me the soldier in gratitude.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

It seems to be ceramic, the paint is in good condition. The test is a thermoluminescence authenticity test performed by Prof. M Y. TAO B.SC sc. P.hd. C.Chem F.R. s. C.on the 25th Jan 1992 at The H K. Uni.He states the proximate age is 1350 years! Tang Dynasty sample was taken from the bottom of the robe. I have the certificate

I have been collecting and selling museum displays from
I have been collecting and selling museum displays from items I've happened across since 1975, while mostly in the service. My shroud of turin was one of 15 made by the sturp team and I sold it along with Items collected in the Middle East as The last week of Jesus to the Holyland Experience in Orlando, Fl. I keep the others for my house in Dallas. Now i'm downsizing and still have most in specially built crates that I keep in Climate controlled environment. I have a a refurbished "Our Lady of Guadalupe" made by the Team allowed to photograph it during the restoration in 1963 in which the Church allowed the Tilman to be viewed with the protective glass removed. In addition I have a full sized "Copper Scroll" scribed inscribed in the various languages that Is mounted on a felt backed display, the only one that I know of from Amman Jordan where the original is located. The Gutenberg Bible is an exact replica of the UT Austin with special Plexiglas's Bobble top. The Bible is a facsimile of one in France that was a copper box type and circa 1959-60, placed in a NYC warehouse until I was able to acquire it in 2012. The final item is a metal set of window type frames in which I placed the most divervse and uninique set of one page examples that show the different materials the uses. The gray backing can be added or removed as the frames contain the Plexiglas documents from Israel and can be put on easels included, sat on a alter or hung. I have them as photos on my face book page. Do you or anyone you know appraise Museum Items such as these? … read more
