    what would alexanders crowns be worth?

    Hi,i dont mind opinions. For the last four months i have heard hundreds of them. So called experts have told me there not crowns .they are crowns.from being new all the way to 3000 bc.i have been called a thief .a forger .a lier.and like i have said i my self have used it as a incense burner for years it sat on my tv i looked at it every day.i find something new about it each day.on the coronet for exampel there is a rams head on the front of it. In the rams head is the greek lions arch .witch i think makes the letter m .if you light a candle the light shines thru a notch on the brim and turns the rams head in to two owls.i know there is more to this .and im not the type of person to just toss in the trash .thanks and have a great day

    David, I think you will have to consider consulting with people who have museum or academic credentials in this area. Maybe an auction house like Sotheby's could point you towards someone. You might have to pay, but there are advantages to professional appraisers/authenticators, like in getting insurance for it.
