I have a Magic Lantern that we found in my mother-in-laws attic.

Customer Question

I have a Magic Lantern that we found in my mother-in-laws attic. How can I find out
if it has any value? I also have an article - not sure what it is called. It is a viewing
device that has cardboard pics of old war pics in France & Germany in the early 1900's.
I live outside of Philadelphia, PA and wasn't sure if there is a reputable antique dealer
in the area that you could recommend for an honest appraisal. OR - if your show will
be coming to my area by the end of 2015. Any info you could give would be great!!!
I appreciate your time and knowledge of these items.
Thank you,
