Inspection Period

We offer a 48 hour inspection period for all antique items. If the item is not to your satisfaction, we will gladly refund your money (not including shipping and handling costs). The 48 hour period starts when the item is delivered to your address. Please contact us to let us know if you will be keeping the item within that time frame. If we do not receive any communication within the 48 hour inspection period, you will have been deemed to have accepted the item(s).  

All sales are final after the 48 hour inspection period. Because most attributions on swords or signatures are based on opinions (expert or otherwise) we cannot guarantee any signatures to be real or fake. We do our best to accurately describe the item. Please use your inspection period to validate attributions and signatures.
