Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.I will be pleased to help you.
Please know that I cannot accept any requests for "live conversations" such as phone calls. I must research up-to-date data to give the most accurate answer.Besides there are extra system charges to you for live conversations.
Different appraisers, especially when appraising jewelry which your belt essentially is, will give entirely different appraisals. Many such appraisals are subjective depending how much the appraiser likes the piece. Also, many appraisers will give very high appraisals to please the customer.
Please tell me the amount of your 15 year old appraisal and I will research your belt's value and tell you whether or not your previous appraisal is currently accurate.
