I have a book of poetry and prose called Golden treasure.

Customer Question
I have a book...

I have a book of poetry and prose called Golden treasure. Published by N.D. Thompson & Co 1883. Is this something I should keep?

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.

British and American Authors. Edited by Francis F. Browne. Introduction by Henry

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

Sorry, Richard Henry Stoddard. New York and St. Louis. Has biographies of authors. 905 pages long.

I do not want to join, I thought I was paying just the 5.00.
Antique Expert: AppraiserJM, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 10 months ago

My apologies, the $5 fee was a deposit. You then clicked an agreement to pay the full $48 appraisal fee upon completion of the appraisal.

I am an outside contractor and I don't have anything to do with the billing part.

If you have concerns, you can contact Customer Service at http://ww2.justanswer.com/contact-us
