North American shipping: I use the services of USPS/Canada Post tracked, with insurance and expedited service. All artifacts are double boxed and packed with extreme care, using the best materials money can buy. If my final shipping cost is higher than collected amount, I will take care of that, within reason, surplus funds will be returned, I combine shipping and do not seek to profit from said. My artifacts have been sold to art gallery owners in New York and Denver, and to residents of Switzerland, Germany, Britain, France, Austria, Italy, Russia and a few other countries. International shipping, (Europe), is quite costly as insurance, tracking and proper packing is not negotiable. As always, I welcome question(s) and/or comments, in some cases please allow up to 48 hours for a response. Seller Comment: *As of September 20th I studied the ceramic shards, and earthly deposits, (with the AmScope), and found some of the "tells of antiquity", the pigment, clay composition and earthly deposits are definitely ancient, *I have those images and will be posting them shortly.
