Customer Question

Norman Rockwell print
Submitted: 1 year ago.
Category: Appraisals
Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.

Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Please tell me the size, not including the mat and frame. Please do not remove from the frame.

Is it numbered?

Please send a photo of the signature. Also, it would be helpful to have a photo of the back.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the signature.

To send photos you may use the "reply to expert" or "add files" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.

An explanation of this method can be found here:

Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.

Your pictures are coming through nicely. What else does it say on the back?

Kind regards,


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nothing else. Wondering if that's an auction #
Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.

It is either auction number or other owner ID number - perhaps shop ID.

I do not accept requests for phone calls. I give my best answers in thoughtful writing.

Besides, you will have an assessment to print out. I did not send you the pop-up.

Where did you see the word/name May?

Kind regards,

See the following address -

Limited Edition Prints - Norman Rockwell

It is the limited edition prints, especially lithographs, that bring the very high prices.

Yours is not a limited edition lithograph, nor is it signed with an original signature.

Therefore, the estimated retail value of your appealing framed print would be $75-90 assuming good condition and depending on sale geographic location.

I truly wish I could value it higher but that would be misleading you.

To sell close to retail, I recommend where the fees are extremely low.

Online auctions like eBay often result in wholesale selling prices.

In general, a private seller to a dealer, via consignment or at auction can expect 30-50% of estimated retail value.

Insurance replacement values are usually about 10% more than retail values.

I hope I have helped you.
