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

Is it possible to upload photos of the item, including any and all marks/signatures?

There should be a +ADD FILES feature next to our Send button.

If not, then there is a paperclip above the reply box that you click to attach photos.

The photos won’t upload unless you also have at least one word in the text box! You won’t see the attached photo along with the text before you post it, but you will see the paperclip or attach button turn green.

If that doesn’t work, please reach out to Customer Service for help at no additional charge:

I look forward to working with you.

hi jennifer, i only have this one item so i really don't need a monthly subscription.
Antique Expert: AppraiserJM, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 7 months ago

That's just fine! You may get other pop ups as well, I don't send them and can't stop them. I don't do phone calls, either.

Really I just need to see photos.
