Hi! My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your Edinburgh shaker. Can you very kindly attach a photo of it, as well as a clear shot of the marks and I should be able to read them for you if they are not too rubbed.Also, how tall is the piece?Many thanks and wait to hear.Robert. PS. Meanwhile, please don't rate me until you get a full appraisal and a value from me. I mention this because you may get random prompts asking you to rate me before I've submitted an answer, ignore them, they are automatically generated by the site (it doesn't seem to be able to distinguish an answer from preparatory back and forth and information gathering) and don't come from me. Thanks, Robert.

I can't attach any photos for some reason
Expert:  Robert S. replied 1 year ago.
Sorry it wont let you attach photos, I'm not sure why that is, I work as an independent agent 'on' but not 'for' the site so I'm no help with these issues, I'm afraid. If the picture uploader is problematic you can upload them to a free public picture hosting site and give me the link so I can go to where you put them.The one I find easiest to use is http://www.imgur.comJust three clicks and a copy and paste and you are done:Go to http://www.imgur.com/(no need to 'log in' or 'register' it makes it too complicated)Click on "Upload Images"Click on "Browse Your Computer"Select the pictures you want to send me from the box that pops up.Hit "open".Click on "Start Upload" (and wait few seconds pictures to load)And then copy the link they give you. It will look similar to this http://www.imgur.com/xxxx and it's located on the right hand side of the page under where it says "Share Link"and paste it here where you are typing to me.(If you have uploaded multiple photos on one Imgur.com link, copy the URL in the browser bar at the top of your screen, otherwise I get just one photo).Hope this helps!Robert
