    My mom gave me this rug a few years ago that was handed down to her from her Grandparents. Authentic Oriental Rug from the 1910's. Supposedly made in Iran and I have been told it is a "Kashan"???

    Had some fucker authenticate it for 100 bucks, but he now wants another $150 for an "certified" estimate. Scumbag. I have been told it could be worth anywhere from $2500 to $10,000. It is sitting in my basement and probably will never be used, so I want to unload it.

    Anyone know anything about this shit?

    Help a Monk out if you can.

    Thanks for your feedback fuckers. It has been invaluable.

    So do I just run an Ad and try to get as much as I can? Give it to an auctioneer? Send it to Dawg so he can chew the corners and piss on it?
