That would certainly make actually loosing one somewhat less of a cross to bare.

Who are your experts ???
You deny the obvious. But after all it is your money. The main thing is that you are happy.
The proof that this box jeweler in the 1950s is not enough?
The purpose of this forum is to help you but of course you are the only master

Certainly not wishing to get embroiled in a topic i know little of, nor an area of collecting I have no experience of, and irrespective of the way this seems to be developing, I do want to comment that posting the contents of a private message on the forum I feel to be in poor taste. There are ways of saying things, and ways of doing things, and this is one that I do not personally agree with....
