Hi Ganapati. Welcome to the forum. Normally i would not have passed this post, but putting in the public eye makes it easier for me to convey this information to everyone as i believe every now and then even our older members need a reminder.
We do not discuss the commercial side of keris. That includes making assessments, discussing keris current up for auction or sale and discussing specific vendors or sellers of keris. This is not only to keep our discussions purely about matters pertaining to the understanding of keris and keris culture, but also because discussing the sales practices of specific vendors can cause legal problems and create bad will on all sides.
So i am afraid it is sort of a let the buyer beware scenario here. Of course, if he had any hard evidence of malfeasance form a specific vendor and felt it was in the best interest of our keris community to warn them about it we probably would, but what you are asking here is not a question we can really address in a public forum.
Hopefully you have questions about keris in you current collection you would like to address or perhaps just examples you would like to show for general commentary. Also feel free to jump on if you have any questions or something to add to any current threads on the page. Thanks! :)
