CHECK YOUR SELLER PAGE
This is a bit tricky, but we're very tired of seeing so many fakes for sale on ebay and elsewhere. There is literally no place to turn for information that will assist with this. So we've started a list. Click on the link below to see our list of questionable sellers. We've tried to be generous, as some folks may be unaware they are selling fakes. To add a seller to this page, please contact us (link at the top of the page). Please include concrete information about why they should be added to the list.
The NO NEED to CHECK YOUR SELLER PAGE
To balance out the list above, we've also created a page of completely trusted sellers. These are folks we've purchased from and folks who generally have been selling for years. They are knowledgeable in their field AND we've seen them clearly describe items that are NOT real when they sell them.
