Evaluation & Appraisal Services
What We Offer
Do you have a collection that you wonder what it might be worth? The Spellman Museum offers an evaluation service for a fee of $40. To schedule an appointment contact the Museum at 781-768-8367 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be sure to watch the calendar for special walk-in evaluation dates too.
Please be sure to store your collection in a safe, cool DRY place away from direct sunlight. In your attic or basement is not a good idea. Humidity or moisture destroy the value of any collection. Albums should be stored upright, rather than standing on their side.
Should I Get My Collection Appraised?
A formal appraisal may not be needed unless required for legal purposes. A formal appraisal typically costs $50 to $100 an hour and provides no guarantee that the material can be sold for the valuation provided. Most appraisals are performed by stamp dealers. We can recommend several highly qualified appraisers.
