Customer Question
Hello, I have an...

Hello, I have an American heritage collection ben franklin doll in it's original box. Is it worth anything?

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'm guessing its from the 60's or 70's originally given out as a bank gift for opening a new account

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

I think that's it

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

Does the box list the maker of this doll? I'm not finding an "American Heritage Collection" in those exact words.

I do not have the box with me. I will get it and respond back either later today or tomorrow. Would it help to send a picture?
Antique Expert: AppraiserJM, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 9 months ago

Sure, a photo or the full box information. I'll be on until 3pm EST today, but then I'll be back at 9am tomorrow, so I'll get to it as soon as I can after you post a photo or the exact name.
