I agree... However that said, I have seen many many eBay items that claimed to be antiques and 
were made last week or in the past 40 years. As these were eBay items that were being looked at, 
I gave my impression based on several years of looking at different images of viking age 
artifacts. It didn't match anything I've ever seen before.
