Rick's suspicions were aroused by the extraordinary statue. condition that led him to summon the Indian art specialist Phineas to evaluate its authenticity and value. You know, sometimes it's too good to be true. I need to know if it's real. I assume you want to sell it, yes, yes, and how much you want for it. he was asking for five thousand dollars for it five thousand dollars okay, I would really like someone to check this out.

Rick texted me this image and when I saw it I immediately thought, "This is something I would really love to see because that's my background and I love Indian art, so I came right away. What are your personal concerns? about it? First, it says it's from India and from the 10th century, which means it's between 1000 and 1100 years old. It's in very good condition.

The feet are missing, which is very interesting to me, so let's talk about the face. This face is not Indian, it is Cambodian. Okay, unfortunately Phineas revealed the statue as a replica, not an original artifact. I found a photo that I had taken. so, look at that and this is from Cambodia, okay, okay, and you can see it's a perfect kind of replication, practically identical, yeah, pretty identical, so you know, I'll have to say it was a replication made in Cambodia . and it's probably between 75 and 150 years old, which is different than this, it goes for 1200 to maybe like two thousand two hundred dollars on the bright side, that would be what you're looking at despite this knowledge.
Rick extended an offer of 800 accepted by Rey. This incident helps. As a fundamental lesson underscoring the need for meticulousness when evaluating antiques, Rick's decision to consult an expert highlighted the complexities of distinguishing genuine artifacts from well-crafted replicas, thank you videos, you're welcome, Rick, are you still stuck in five thousand Like it's not okay anymore, so what are they? are you willing to accept 18. Okay, he just said it would cost between 12 and 24. Okay, okay, and if I buy for 18. I'll most likely lose money, maybe about $700 on it.

What do we have here? ivory tusk, okay, and what do you want to do with it? I want to


it for seven to ten days, okay, use the money between now and four o'clock, so how did you get this? I bought it in Taipei, how much did it cost you? I paid a lot for it, okay, unfortunately it's not ivory, the porous texture and segmented panels marked its lack of authenticity. Rick, wary of unscrupulous practices, explained the difference between bone and solid ivory, expressing his ethical concerns, what do you mean it's not ivory, this is bone, it's reconstructed? bone and is made for the tourist trade it only took two seconds to know it was ivory.
I've seen it hundreds of times before they were in Asia they went to a market and they were told they were ivory. They spent a lot of money. in them they told me it was Ivory Ivory would be much heavier than this whoever says it says that the bone is porous Ivory is not Ivory it is completely solid if you look closely look at the panels how they come together like this well, if it were real Ivory, it would just be a solid piece and what they do is they cut pieces of bone and shape them around a piece of wood and this is what you get oh my goodness actually through the split here you can see the wood. that is below when you go abroad there are many unscrupulous traders who will tell you what Ivory is when it is not declining due to their policy of not using Ivory.
Rick offered a hundred dollars, which Jenny rejected, emphasizing authenticity over appearance. I'm not really interested in buying Ivory. I mean ivory used to be necessary for billiard balls, concert pianos and a few other things, nowadays you have synthetic materials. I don't like the process of obtaining ivory. I do not like politics. I don't like how at all. how much we were looking to get out of this 1000 to 15. There's no way I'm going to lend you like 100 on this no, it's okay, that's what I can do a little better, there's no way I can do better Rick Cliff Jenny was disappointed at the realize that the tusk true nature versus possible scams is not real it's bone it's okay, it's beautiful, yes, it's pretty, but I don't take care of the pretty, I lend what I can sell it, okay, I mean, that's basically it what you have, good, thank you very much.
