A NOTE ABOUT Authenticity, Condition and Restoration
Cowan’s strives to sell only authentic artifacts. We view the sheer number of fraudulent artifacts in the marketplace a threat to the collecting hobby, and frankly, place little stock in “Certificates of Authenticity” and prefer to offer old, well-documented artifacts.
