Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques and art collector as well as dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Please check the date again. Is it 1836 and not 1863?

Is it hard back? Rank the condition 1 to 10 where 1 is very poor and 10 is excellent.

Kind regards,

I do not accept requests for phone calls. I give my best answers in thoughtful writing.

Besides, you will have an assessment to print out. There are extra charges for phone calls. I did not send you the pop-up.

Expert:  Doris replied 11 months ago.

Do you have an iphone or a phone that take pictures? Do you have a digital camera?

Let's try this instead.

Type out the letters of the Roman numerals.
