I have been increasingly concerned at items I come across on ebay which are
from metal detector finds
what is being done about monitoring this vast selling forum for illegal
selling at home and abroad?
for those who have not looked go to
click on search and then on 'by seller' and put in this one sellers name
then when you have looked at items currently for sale in his list, click on
the number in brackets after the name - it was 2244 when I looked last and
has a red star next to it - this will take you to his feedback lists where
clicking on the huge number of item numbers will tell you what he has
already sold and how much he got for it
this is only one of many and I am very concerned that ebay is a potential
major source of moving minor and major artefacts around the world and will
encourage people to go out secretly and not report finds.
