Hi,

Thats a pretty big price range? $700-$4500?
Expert:  Nora replied 1 year ago.

My apologies for the typo, $500 - $700 is what that is supposed to say.

Could you tell me how you came about those numbers please?
Expert:  Nora replied 1 year ago.

Hello,

Yes, the estimated sale value is based on actual transparent past sale auction records of dedicated sketches sent in the mail by Red Skelton and other letters. These can be viewed on the websites worthpoint.com and askart.com, two subscription databases used by professionals in the worlds of fine art and antiques.
