Anyone that was seriously going to put up the

how to go about authenticating this item.
It's been estimated by experts that a third to half of the "original
artwork", previously valued at a total in the tens of billions in museums
and collectors' places, are counterfeits. There have been a number of
well-researched news stories, including a full segment on "60 Minutes" a
couple of decades ago, where a counterfeiter was interviewed and showed how
he executed his craft. One counterfeiter was so good that he sold
paintings for tens of millions of dollars that were never even painted by
the purported original artist, but were hinted at or described by art
historians, based on rumors going back into the mists of time.
Caveat emptor ..
