Hello. My name is***** would be happy to help you. Please allow me to review the photos and I will post back on the best avemue to sell on Thank you

Expert:  LadyTanya65 replied 1 year ago.

Hello to sell these three photographs online would give you the largest audience. The sites listed below have collectors and dealers that buy from on a regular basis:

and of course and craigslist

To sell the photographs you will want to protect them, if not already, in a clear plastic sleeve like collectors use for comic books. Also, place a white board(similar to cardstock) behind the photo to give strength and a sturdy base.

the value on these photos are $25.00-30.00 each The photo here looks like the condition is very good on the upper left corner it looks that at one time there were thumb tacks used on the photograph.

Please let me know if I may be of further service. I am happy to help always.

Expert:  LadyTanya65 replied 1 year ago.

This was no con job.. I am sorry for the misunderstanding. if you are selling the three figures I need to see the figures and the meausrements. You stated you had three photos of these three figures.

Expert:  Nora replied 1 year ago.


I will be happy to help. Can you please provide an average size of the figures of your Nativity 3 Kings. As well, can you check for any label, tags or signatures on the back side, on the underside or under the clothing. In addition, clear, in-focus close-ups of the faces will be very helpful.

You can send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.
