Customer Question
Found a WW1 photo...

Found a WW1 photo Album in my father-in-law's belongings. Fascinating stuff. Can it be appraised?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Scrapbook format.... Crown Prince of Belgium.. purple Heart and other medals...very nicely done.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I wish to communicate by phone. Actually you will ultimately need to communicate with my mother-in-law Pat. The album is with her. What can we do toaccomplish this?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Is there another expert who WILL talk on the phone?
Antique Expert: Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser replied 11 months ago

You have a phone call request in, if one of the experts can help you by phone they will reach out to do so. If not then there is not anyone who can or will do a phone call. Experts only do phone calls if they want to. We are independent of the site we do not work for the site, we come to the site to answer questions customers post there.

All the experts that do phone calls have more then likely looked at the request. If there is one that will take it you will be contacted.
