History and Resume---Ransom Hundley
I began metal detecting in 1972 using a Metrotech. Remember that one? I've
been rewarded by finding relics of every description. Through the osmosis of "feel
and touch", Ive developed a good baseline of experience coupled with a
significant amount of knowledge regarding the authenticity of artifacts. Are there people
out there who know more than I do? Absolutely! And their number is many. Do I consider
myself an expert in judging Civil War artifacts? Nope! I do not. And I do not hesitate to
defer to those specialists who have assimilated knowledge beyond my limits.
Having said that and two amens, please allow me to mention what I bring
to the table.
1 Guarantee of authenticity.
Buy with absolute confidence! The buck stops here. There is no time limit on
authenticity. It is a principle that has no expiration date. (Well, not quite true. When
I die, the guarantee stops.) Until that time, you may return any item for a
refund if you are not happy with it for any reason. Buyer will pay
return shipping and insurance. I will lose listing fees/any profit made on the
item. Refund will be in full if the item is returned in the same condition
in which it was purchased. If cleaned, altered or damaged in any way, it
will be returned to you and our guarantee will not apply.
2 Customer oriented attitude.
I once managed a jewelry store whose motto was the customer is always right.
I still retain that mentality and will bend to the wishes and needs of the customer more
than most. Simply stated, I go that extra mile in order to facilitate a customers
specific needs. Its not just my promise; its my way of doing business.
3 Prompt shipping and reliable tracking data.
Unlike some you may have dealt with, I will do everything possible to ship
promptly---and without tacking on heavy handling charges. I will never tell you an item "
has already been shipped" unless it has. If I run into situations of supply that are beyond my
control, you will be alerted and offered an immediate refund, so you may purchase elsewhere.
