I just got this email. I suspect many on the board have. I just thougt I'd post it just in case. If your a regular here you probably would avoid it anyway. But you want to advise new students and others who may be tempted;
I am an independent archival research and I have
japanese sword (katana) with the blade from XVIII
century and I would like to sell it for the reasonable
price. If you think you could have an interest in such
antique item, please keep me inform. I also have a
tanto from XIX century.
I am waiting for your answer.
All the best.
