Customer Question
Antique piano rolls some...

Antique piano rolls some very old how do I find value?

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.

I was given 50 + rolls and I was wondering where to find value some are WW 2 type songs or before

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

They appear in good shape some of the boxes have glue issues but no one has tried to repair
