Hello, You will want to contact the ISA or AAA to find an appraiser with this specialty in or near your area. The International Society of Appraisers can be reached through this site: And the Appraiser's Association of America can be reached through this site: Appraiser's charge in the range of $150 - $500 an hour for their services and the Hummel market is rather flat currently. I do suggest first trying a recently published Hummel price guide that you can borrow from your local library, this will be the more economical method. ~Nora
