(Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I've already given you my credit card. I don't need a business attorney. I need someone who is familiar with musicians in America.

Hello, My name is ***** ***** I am here to help. In general, experts only assess one item per question and your collection involves numerous objects. I can refer you to some specialty music dealers who may be able to steer you in the right direction towards getting the information you need. Please let me know if that will be amenable to you. Sincerely, Nora

Sorry I didn't reply sooner. I need an expert who has show business credentials. I would be interested in what you have to offer. The "Fred Waring's America" is dying to get their hands on this collection. I only need the appraisal for tax purposes.

Ok, understood.

I sure wouldn't mind you steering me in the right direction. I'm 74 yrs old and handicapped. Really don't know where else to turn! Thanks!

Hi Ann~
Thank you for your patience.
If you want to contact someone with show business background, then you can first try the auction company Profiles in History as they specialize in that area. You can send in your info for a possible free estimate of value and you would not be required to sell with them.

If you require a formal appraisal, then it would be best to contact Stephen Braitman, a music appraiser.

Thank you! I paid my yearly dues to Just Answer. Do you know if I can watch them for someone in the show business category or musicians?
Expert:  Nora replied 2 years ago.
Hello,
You are welcome and my pleasure to help.
Could you please clarify your question here.
~Nora
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I think my question is clear. I need an expert on show business or musicians. Because you answered, does that now preclude me from asking the question again looking for an expert in those areas?
Expert:  Nora replied 2 years ago.
Hello,
Thank you for clarifying.
Generally the protocol here is that once one expert has posted an answer with you another expert will not step in and also post an answer to this thread.
You can, however, post a new question asking for experts in show business and musicians.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
Sincerely,
Nora

Hi Ann~
I will opt-out and your question will open again to all the experts. If someone knows the answer they will post a response to you here. You do not need to re-list your question and this does not cost you extra.
Opening the question is not a guarantee that you will receive a response.
I will not be able to respond back after opting-out.
I do hope you find the information that you seek.
Sincerely,
Nora
