Welcome to Bennett's Authentic Ancient Artifacts!
If this is your first time to my artifact site, let me welcome you and take a moment to introduce myself - I am Jim Bennett from North Central Ohio, and I have been an Artifact collector and dealer for over 19 years. I am very careful on what I collect - and even more careful on what I sell. I have a serious dislike for reproduction artifacts and those who sell them to un-suspecting buyers in order to make a quick buck. This disdain for fakes led me to begin the the AACA ( Authentic Artifact Collector Association ) years ago as I grew weary of seeing so many fakes being sold as ancient relics on the internet. It also inspired me to write the Relics & Reproduction series of books to give collectors a "heads-up" on what was going on in the artifact marketplace and share some ways to decipher the traits that indicate authenticity.
About Our Website:
Bennett's is proud to offer only AUTHENTIC Artifacts. We have worked hard over the last 18 years to prove our reputation for selling only ancient artifacts and then backing up those artifacts with a REAL guarantee of authenticity.
Our site is updated often with new artifacts for sale. As collections are located and artifacts are consigned to us from other collectors, every artifacts is checked for age, authenticity, restoration and rechipping. Any artifact that has the possibility of being a reproduction or having modern rechipping is culled out and never offered for sale. Relics with minor restoration are clearly marked as being restored and priced accordingly. The way we see it, there are enough fakes and rechips on the internet and in the marketplace as it is, and we will always take every measure possible to insure all artifacts we offer are items of genuine antiquity.
