Having looked through only some of that merchant's crap for sale I'm amazed that the feedback is 100%. Then again, the purchasers clearly don't know what they're looking at and are falling for his lies and exaggeration :thumbdown:

Anyone for some Celtic oysters? After seeing this I dare not look past page one and there's 193 pages of BS! :o

I like this one. Obtained from a top 'meteorologist' and a bargain at only £1148 :thumbsup:

I would say looking at feedback and the items sold, there is some shill bidding or fake accounts there. A fraction of a lead seal for £13? That is got to be fake. Either that or there is a metric tonne of gullible people out there and I should retire and sell my junk bucket.

Also there is the usual bypassing of treasure the act by saying items are from old collections from Northern Europe. The UK is in northern Europe so not an out right lie and the other swerve is to say from an old collection implying pre-1996 so outside of the treasure act. The Viking silver pendant sold for best offer around £365, if found in the UK is a clear breach of the treasure act.

Maybe the guy does buy stuff in to sell but I find the found in Northern Europe is always a bit dodgy on listings.
