About Us

    Greetings!  Et Tu Antiquities is a small company that specializes in Roman and Greek coins and antiquities.  We have been collecting for many years and have been in business since 1996.  Our goal is not to become rich off this but to help support our collecting habit and to add new collectors to this fascinating hobby. 


No small print here.  You are the customer.  If you receive an item and are not satisfied, SEND IT BACK!!  As long as it is in the same condition as when you received it, we will gladly refund your money.  The reason for this minor condition is simple.  We have seen people destroy antiquities and coins by using steel brushes or acid to clean them and then be amazed that they ruined the item. 

All coins and antiquities we sell are guaranteed for life to be authentic.  If it is ever determined that one of our offerings is not authentic, send us the coin or antiquity back and we will refund your money.  This is VERY rare.  Initially, all of our items were examined by our expert (me) and at least one other expert for those items.  Even now, any item of questionable origin is always validated with an additional evaluation.

Shipping and handling

In our entire history, we have had only one item become lost or broken on its way to our customers.  A package we sent looked like it was used for soccer practice!!  Even then, the only damage to the lamp was that the handle was broken.  The customer sent it back and we replaced the lamp.

All lamps and antiquities are sent US Postal Service priority mail within the United States.  Most are shipped in small wood crates, then bubble wrapped, then surrounded by packing peanuts.

Coins are placed between cardboard sheets, then packaged in padded envelopes.  Coins shipped to U.S. addresses and valued over $100 are insured and coins over $400 are sent registered mail.

Packages shipped outside the U.S. are still packaged carefully but are shipped at buyer's risk.

Shipping costs are:

U.S. delivery - coins (value < $100)  -  $2.00
                     coins (value > $100)  -  $5.00
                     lamp or antiquity       -  $6.50 or less (by size and weight)

International - coins (at buyer's risk) -  $3.00
