Customer Question
Hello- My family has...

Hello- My family has (what we believe to be) an original/never seen photo of Einstein and Ethel Rosenberg together on a beach in CA. Taken by a member of our family (my grandmother's first husband, who was a photographer; and we also believe the two were acquainted with Einstein). We are wondering about it's value and what to do with it?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Not that I can think of.
