Appraisal

*While we appraise most jewelry items and coins, there are certain items that require evaluation by a specialist. We are not GIA certified gemologists nor certified coin graders, however we are the right place to start. We can then, if appropriate, subcontract that work to specialists with whom we have good relationships and can trust.

Levels Of Service

Not everyone needs the same level of service. Depending on the item and purpose of the appraisal, often times a simple verbal identification and value estimate will suffice. On the other hand, when using an appraisal for estate settlement, tax-deductible donation, or for use as collateral, a highly detailed appraisal — usually including a thorough written description and comparable sales research is called for. We are equally experienced in all such levels of service.
