I am wondering what an approximate value for my dad's doll…

Customer Question
Hi, my name is*****...

Hi, my name is***** am wondering what an approximate value for my dad's doll baby would be worth. Approx. 1926-27. Looks to be like a boy doll with original jumper. Still makes a little faint cry, eyes open and close. I could take a picture of it for you. I think it's porceline ... not rubber by any means.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Not certain ... I have never approached or inquired anyone regarding an antique.
