I have a typed letter from Warren Buffett. It is addressed

Customer Question

I have a typed letter from Warren Buffett. It is addressed to me, and I have the original envelope sent to me in 1996. He signed the letter and wrote a short, personal PS to me. I would like to know if the letter has any monetary value, and if so, how much, and if the value is potentially worth it, how I might pursue the opportunity to sell the letter.

Hi my name is***** you for coming to Just Answer.
.
I will be glad to help you today.

This is your answer, please rate this after reading it. This is important to me getting credit for my work.
.
I have been in the antique business for over 45 years, Appraising, Antique shop owner, also buying and selling on today's current market. it is my pleasure to put my experience to work for you.
.
The Warren Buffett Memorabilia like this, has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $1***-**-****.00 depending on the condition and where it is for sale at. These will typically sell higher in an Antique Shop or Private sale compared to an auction. If you are thinking of selling, you might want to check your local Antique Shops in the area to see what yours or one like it would sell for or has sold for, then you can decide to sell online or locally.
.
Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is also Rubylane, which is a more upscale site where people sell more expensive items. There is also Tias and GoAntiques, which is on the same scale of Rubylane. There is Amazon Market Place, ArtFire and of course Ebay. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great!
.
If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this.

Thank you Glenda. Can you think of any way to identify people who are interested in Warren Buffett artifacts?
Expert:  Glenda B. replied 7 months ago.

Hello

There is not way to really know, most people decide what they want to sell their items for and list them on Ebay, they set reserves and just list them at auction. This is by far the largest shopping area, since it is world wide. If this were mine I would list it there. Just be sure to start your auction to run through a weekend when more people have time to browse.
