This one better have a ton of provenance documents with it.... what do you guys think???
agreed. we are but temporary caretakers of artifacts. and one of such notability (if it can be proven) isn't something to be taken lightly and hidden away in a private home. that price I think is a bit steep even if it is proven to have been owned and worn by him. without proof its pie in the sky hearsay.You would really want some hard bona fide evidence of traceable provenance. Even then it's just material and leather which belongs in a public museum. Collectors don't live forever so can only gloat over their trinkets for so many years before they themselves are pushing up daises.
none. just claimed to have gotten it from a reputable collector. I'm sure if you purchased it that name would be made known to you and you could ask the collector for further info if they have any.I didn’t check the website but did you happen to notice any documents or provenance with it?
