FAKE

2500 YEAR OLD ANCIENT EGYPTIAN AMULET SCARAB BEAD

Sold on eBay by seller "BF"
Starting Bid: US $35.00 (unsold)
Ended: May-14-06

Thank you for viewing my auction. I have been collecting for almost 50 years and purchased all my items from the most reputable sources but mostly at auction in London. The majority of purchases were made in the 1960's-80's when good things were available on a regular basis. I will be selling over 1000 items in the next few months so be sure to bookmark the Sunnytampa seller page as I will be adding rare and interesting items on a regular basis. If you are interested in bidding on multiple items, please note that I will combine shipping and make it point to never profit from shipping. Read our feedback and bid with confidence. This is a scarab of the Greek/Roman period, about 200 BC. It is a rudimentary representation of the scarabus beetle and has no inscription on the underside. It surely was made for inclusion in the mummy wrap because it would not pass on the street. It probably was removed in the great mummy unwrappings of the Victorian Period. Length is 1/2". Condition is as shown.
