Customer Question
I have over 100...

I have over 100 78s that I would be willing to give to a collector that would appreciate them. Where should I start?

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.

I have a list on my computer in Word format. But, again, we are down-sizing and getting things to good homes is more important than values. We live in the northern California greater bay area.

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

Is there any collector in the area that might be interested? I read the articles by Tim Gracyk...
