Customer Question
My father, born in...

My father, born in 1914 loved collecting. By the time I was 10, I owned and assisted in over 15 different rare, valuable, and fun collections. Currently, I'm looking for buyers for some of these collections, either in full, or by piece. I need direction on who to go to, and how to authenticate, and get appraisals on my collections. These range from coins, U.S., and foreign, toys, decor, jewelry, cameras, fine art, and pieces I'm unsure of information.

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. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

How do I get in touch with an appraiser, and authenticator?
