Customer Question
I have some vintage...

I have some vintage tin ships. Need appraised ASAP. Can I send you a photos?

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

May I send a photo?

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

No - just trying to value the items - there are two ships. antique vintage clockwork tin maybe foreign - German
