    Ancient Sha-Di

    While in Florida a few years ago I went to this outside "junk" flea market. Most of the items were from peoples attics. I spotted this Jewish item that just struck my eye. I bought it for $5.00. Anyway it sat in my junk collection box until recently while I was in Manhattan and brought it along to see if it could be identified. There are many stores in Manhattan that sell Jewish religious items.
    Anyway to make a long story short the store owner looks at it and asks where I found this. So I told him the story and I asked him what was written on it and its value.
    He told me that the words are pronounced Sha-Di and it means the name of GOD. Then he tells me that the piece should be in a Museum. WoW!!!!
    He says the piece is Ancient, hand made, and a one of a kind item.

    That's absolutely beautiful! Is it from the Holy Land? What is the marking on the back?

    Ancient is over 1,000 yrs old, did he give you a more specific idea of it's age and origin? Also, is it silver?
    Finally, will the real Slim Sha-Di please stand up!
    The only ones for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the sky.
