12 years ago, almost to the day, we wrote:

“German eBay has just introduced new rules on the sale of archaeological artefacts. Anything sold must be accompanied by proper documentation showing the seller’s title and proof that it has been properly reported“.

As a result, there are now zero Metalldetektionsfunde (metal detecting finds) directly offered on German eBay. Providing “proper documentation” has turned out to be too difficult, it seems.

However, you CAN buy thousands of finds via German eBay. They are the ones designated as from international sellers, people who aren’t obliged to provide proper documentation. They’re nearly all from Großbritannien!
