Answer
Hi Torrance-
The first thing I want you to do is take this item to your bank and get a safe deposit box to put it in. Please do not confide in anyone that you own this item, as dishonest dealers would love to take you for a ride. You are potentially sitting on a fortune there.
This item requires all kinds of special permits and paperwork. A phone call would be in order. Please email my personal address mascaraandlipgloss@gmail.com, please send photos and your number, I will help you!
