2016 - the most successful year for fake manufacturers and sellers.
The worst year for collectors, newbies and bargain hunters.
or the renewed fall of the Roman Empire

Let us state the obvious difference between a copy and a fake on the market – when a buyer knows an object is a copy – it is a copy, when resold as an authentic object – it is a fake.

Since ebay rests on its seller / buyer protection, the fake seller have nothing more to fear. Negative feedbacks can be removed, sometimes happens automatically, namely, if the seller quickly meets the wishes of the buyer for a claim and reimburses the amount. If a counterfeit seller has good connections to the customer service, he will never have to endure negative feedback. 100% positive feedback on 100% sale of counterfeits - not unusual.

Ebay and paypal strategy: profit under all circumstances. Since most buyers do not even notice that they bought fakes, this strategy is paying off.

On the same website are sold replicas and some clicks later from untrustworthy sellers offered as genuine. Legionary rings produced in Yugoslavia, Serbia, Bulgaria, are flooding the market. These forgeries offered over middle-men in the USA, UK and also France, sometimes Germany, often reach fantasy prices. Legion rings are very rarely preserved. This year no week passed without legion rings  and as far as I remember, only two of them (offered 2015 and 2016) were genuine. Obviously we need to rewrite history. The Roman Empire was limited only to the Serbian and Romanian territory. And the complete leadership of the Roman Empire including all (I think 30) legions and their higher ranks lost their rings on this territory.

No one has ever wondered where the many silver and gold rings came from. Why the bronze rings suddenly have all the visible engravings and why the sellers know exactly what the engraving means. Of course, all in perfect condition.The extraordinary pieces were without exception all recently found in Serbia / Yugoslavia /Bulgaria and now can be sold thanks God to the appreciative crowd.
Gold only pure, ie 24 ct. although massive golden objects with very high purity have existed only since the 19th century. For example:  the Celts promoted mainly river gold, not mountain gold .  There are probably gold sand (goldflittchen) from rivers, which reach a purity of over 90%, but that's more the exception.

Last but not least. Lately, Afghan trinkets, Islamic rings, pendants, gold beads, are offered on ebay as Tudor, Queen Anne and Roman artifacts. Bronze, silver, gold plated and gold. But all have in common, they are certainly neither Tudor, Queen Anne, Roman, Celtic or Viking. The source of supply is Thailand..... Ops

We were able to find one fake factory in Eastern Europe with the help of a deceived buyer. Despite appropriate information to the sellers, they continued. Ebay showed no reactions at all. Why also, 10% selling fee are a strong argument. The rest is not interested. As I said, one has indeed the buyer protection. Who does not claim it, has bad luck.

from Being Aware of Fake Archaeological Artefacts http://www.archaeologyexpert.co.uk/Fakes.html

„Some analysts believe that 90% of all the artefacts and coins sold on internet auctions as genuine are nothing but fakes.

As long as there continues to be a desire to hold and own relics of antiquity there will be others equal to the task of forging them. If a 4000-year-old pottery jug starts selling at 50p on an internet auction, the chances are very high it is not genuine."

By the way: Artifacts may not be exported. Not interested? Most buyers do not care where the object comes from.

"Objects are regarded as objects of illicit import if the persons importing the cultural object are obliged to make sure that the cultural objects are accompanied by valid export permits if the regulations of the country of origin request this .  Export licences are to be presented during customs processing."
With the purchase of these illegal antiques are however criminals gangs supported. Should be questioned.

The same applies to the purchase of fakes. Not only the buyers are deceived, indirectly they support these fake sellers. The market for fakes is booming and the buyers of these counterfeits are not entirely innocent. The counterfeiters supply what the market asks. Simple commercial rule: the demand determines the offer.

The run on the fakes continues unabated. We can not prevent it. We can only enlighten and shaking our head accompany this immense fraud.

A happy New Year 2017................... and may the fake collectors finally become less. A first step would be to acquire knowledge.
