For an official IRS donation appraisal you will really want to work with an accredited appraiser who is a member of one of 3 appraiser associations. To find one who specializes in Coca-Cola collectibles in your area, you will go to each of the 3 sites and enter your location into their 'find an appraiser' directories. From there, you will contact each qualified appraiser who comes up in your area and they will relay to you their fees for service.

Here are the links for you to each of the groups:

ISA, International Society of Appraisers:

ASA, American Society of Appraisers:

AAA, Appraiser's Association of American:
