Customer Question
I have never seen...

I have never seen one of these, but I have a foldable wooden map/contract table that may have been used in the Civil War. It is the kind of foldable table they carried in the wagon and set up in the tent to use for charts and maps. Very rare. How do I even begin to find its worth?

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?

No. I do have pics
