A MATTER OF FAXE ARCHAEOLOGICALLY SPEAKING, IT'S THE PITS
Arthur E. Faxe, the eccentric entrepreneur and amateur archaeologist, sails this month for ancient Mesopotamia in search of human fossils and in the hope of proving the Darwinian Theory of Evolution. Faxe has chosen a region of the Tigris-Euphrates Valley known since ancient times as Vages for the site of his expedition. This area is distinguished by an immense and prominent boulder that can be seen for miles and is known locally as the Rock of Vages. A small cleft, or opening, at the base of the rock is the site of an unusual collection of fossils. The cleft, discovered in 1854 by French archaeologist, Henri Formie, is described in scientific literature as Rock of Vages, Cleft Formie. By arrangement with the local government, Faxe and his entourage will establish an extensive camp in an abandoned military fort near the archaeological site and overlooking the Tigris River.
Faxe advises, "We are endeavoring to locate evidence in fossil form of the existence of an ancient human or near-human ancestor. I have spared no expense to see that my staff and guests are provided with the most modern of equipment necessary for their research and the essentials necessary for their comfort."
Purveyors of goods to the expedition advise that no less than fifty cases of fine wines and champagnes will accompany Faxe along with appropriate linen, silver and china, tables, chairs, canopies and tents, as well as a quantity of armaments for hunting and defense against bands of brigands which are known to roam the area. A domestic staff of thirty will be on hand, as well as an archaeological research team of seven.
The expedition, by arrangement with the Turkish government, will occupy an old fortress situated near the site of the dig. The fort, unused by the present government but once a key military post, is called Fort Ap Aachih.

Send your zip code for ship cost- should be between $4.95 and $7.95 if you are in the USA.
I accept checks and money orders. Cash only if you pick up. Since this is also available locally it is subject to prior sale.
I am a one man operation in central NJ and have been a part time reseller, collector, and pack rat for almost 10 years. I usually find my items at local thrift stores, garage sales, flea markets, etc. In the past I used the eBay auction service exclusively but due to their increasingly restrictive policies and lack of protection for sellers I have moved on to other venues. Total feedback on eBay is around 7000 sales with approx. 99.8% positives- seller ID's are available on request. One of my ebay seller ID's is "stereos"- check it out and feel free to contact me through eBay to verify.
The safest way to pay me is with a check with "for deposit only" written on the back, money orders are also OK. In most cases I wait until a check has cleared before shipping. I don't use PayPal because of the chance of fraud and the fees.
International bidders are welcome but make sure you know how you are going to send payment- since I don't use PayPal or credit cards it may be inconvenient. In Canada, Japan, and Australia you can purchase a US Dollar Postal Money order for payment. Any verifiable check or money order that is drawn on a US bank will also be OK.
