  1. Thanks Ray! Sent you a PM with the link. Best, Dr. James B. McNicholas III (EastCoast)
  2. All, There is a collection up for sale locally and I wanted to see if I can get some input on the following items. Please note, these are their pictures and I have not yet been out to see the items. I know more is needed for identification, so I am more interested in the mei right now. SWORD 1 Sword 1 - Mei Sword 1 - Mei Close Up 1 Sword 1 - Mei Close Up 2 Sword 1 - Mei Close Up 3 SWORD 2 Sword 2 - Mei Sword 2 - Side View Thanks in advance! Best, Dr. James B. McNicholas III (EastCoast)
  3. Interesting package. Love the tsuba!
  4. Paul - I was wondering if that was the case. Happened to me as well at one point. BTW, the woman you spoke with makes excellent tea. If you stop in and are offered some, do not hesitate to a accept.
  5. Anyone interested in updates? I will be back home tomorrow after nearly a month and a half out. Assuming my housekeeper didn't walk with my collection. I can take some new pictures to see how the wax has held up.
  6. BJ - Those are the cases I use. They are very nice. I ordered mine on Amazon.
  7. JT - PM me. They have sent me swords VIA FedEx Express before. I'll see what I can do. Best, James
  8. JT - I've never had a standoffish relationship with them. I have had a few preemptive concerns in the past,especially in the beginning, but they always came through and exceeded my expectations.
  9. JT - I do a lot of business with AOI. I'm sure they would work with you; however, if you really like the pieces I would just wait. I also agree with Oshy in that this is a great time to consider a fresh polish or paper upgrade. I may be heading that way in a few months. I may be able to bring them back for you.
  10. Adam, Thanks for the heads up. There was a full set on AOI (F+M) a few weeks back I missed out on. Best, James
  11. Tom, Why do you think it is not right? I'm still learning, so specific details would be greatly appreciated. Best, James
  12. drvac, Can you take some shots of the dehumidifier setup on your case? Best, James
  13. PNS - I'd like to learn more about this topic. Would you happen to have a link or resource?
  14. Ian & Ken, Do you have any ideas as to what the function of the weights were? Best, James
