Second opinion] Hello, Expert's...

Second opinion] Hello,

Expert's Assistant: Hello. How can I help?

I'm looking to get some idea of value for two instruments. The Brilliantone Mando, L.H. Leland, flat back and The Empire Mandolin Ditson Co, Boston, gourd shape back. Both have MOP inlay and both have original cases and both are without scrapes/bruises.

Expert's Assistant: I love the notion of my brother's old guitar having a history and belonging to someone famous. Maybe you have something valuable or historical. Let's find out. Is there anything else the Musical Instrument Appraiser should be aware of?

My dad told me he got them during WWII.

No pictures at this time. A friend is coming over this weekend to take pictures. Will that be too late?
