Always verify the authenticity before purchasing a vintage item. If you are not an expert, it is wise to approach someone who has the appropriate knowledge. If possible, always ask for certification or documentation. When buying from a private seller, make sure you read and understand the description provided carefully. Study the photographs provided to give you a clear image of the item you are about to buy. If the items you are buying are fragile or easily breakable, take special care and ask the seller who is responsible for any items which may arrive broken or damaged? Similarly, if the item is bulky or heavy, ask who is responsible for the safe collection or delivery of the memorabilia?
