Customer Question
Hi What's the best...

Hi What's the best way to find what I have is valuable?

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I have four reprints by currier & ives. One is by F.F. Palmer.

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

One of the titles is The old Farm Gate and they all say Entered according to act of Congress AD 1867, by Currier & Ives, in the Clerk's office of the District Court of the United States, for the Southern District of New York.

Hi James,

I received the images, thank you, ***** ***** came in as thumbnail size. I am not able to enlarge or zoom the images to determine the titles and if they are original to their time or later printings.

If you can check for some of these 'clues' on them maybe I can narrow this down for you.

What is the approximate paper size and image size of each?

Is there an NYC street address printed on each of them, for example*****

What is the title of each?

~Nora
