I have inherited a stamp collection that was my grandfathers.

Customer Question
I have inherited a stamp...
I have inherited a stamp collection that was my grandfather's. Most of the stamps are in the "Modern Postage Stamp Album" which is fairly full and a number of the stamps are loose. I would like to have my collection appraised but I don't know where to go to get an honest appraisal. I've contacted the American Philatelic Society and they can appraise it, but I need to either mail the collection to them or take digital pictures of it. I don't feel comfortable mailing it because I worry it could get lost, damaged, or in the humidity, the loose stamps could stick together. I've started taking pictures of it, but am realizing this project will take hundreds of hours because there are so many stamps and I can only photograph a couple at a time to get close enough in the picture for them to be read and I don't think the appraiser would be willing to review that many photos. I would like to find a local appraiser but I don't know how. I live in the Washington, D.C. area but am willing to drive a couple hours from here. I would appreciate your thoughts on how I might find a local appriaser or other suggestions for getting my collection appraised. Thank you!
