Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

Here at JustAnswer, we are limited to appraising one item per question. Since these are similar items, I can extend that to two, but I really can't appraise six items within one question. Would you like to choose two?

Sincerely,

Jennifer

No thank you. just cancel my order. I will stop payment from paypal. We will do what we usually do and guess a price. I was just hoping for an opinion. Thank you anyway. I have no budget to pay for appraisals, and would prefer not to spend my own money. Please cancel my request. Payment wasn't mentioned until I spent a lot of time typing. Initial "advertising" on google is misleading. Thanks anyway. Barbara
