I have a New Testament that belonged to my Grandfather. Whitman Publishing company Racine, Wisconsin. No.816

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.

Not much, no publishing date. My Grandfather was born in 1888, has his name written in it.

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