Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 1. Have 6+ sims who have higher level in archaeology. 2. Receive some artifact from mailbox. 3. Authenticate all artifacts(1 sim - 1 artifact - 1 workbench) * 6+. 4. After eveyone is done, click each artifact and select "Mail back Artifact".
What happens when the bug occurs? Sometimes(30%+), the artifact disappeared but it didn't give me money.
What do you expect to see? When the item disappeared, add a money to the household funds.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
I have this issue, but I think it only happens if I ignore these artifacts long enough. Maybe it's intended and we are not getting money for being not fast enough?

I've encountered this issue, too. It usually occurs for me if they authenticate two artifacts they can get money from on the same day/within 24 hours. They get paid for the first one, but the second one is being ignored when they send it back.
I too thought this was intended, as it usually only happens to artifacts that haven't been looked at quick enough, but the game doesn't always follow that rule. It's definitely somewhat buggy if it is intended, as sometimes brand new artifacts won't be paid for either.
