Original Message:   Re: This type of thing drives me crazy
Thanks for your posting. I search Ebay every day for "Indian Trade Beads" - these beads came up in that search. Having only been a member of BCN for a year, and learning new things every day from BCN folks, how does one spot these beads as fakes?? Where and when were they made?? I do see "Indian Trade Beads" very frequently that are clearly African (Raffia is a dead give-away) or beads that simply were never traded to Native Americans in the US. Ebay sellers even try to pass off sand cast strands/singles and Miiefiori beads as found at Native American sites....
