We have a few different types of doll appraisals. In order to provide our customers with the level of appraisal they desire and will best fit there needs, we have developed different types of appraisal packages.
You may need only the dolls identification and estimated value or you might want a more complete detailed history of the doll and its creator. The following packages allow you to select the appraisal, which best fits, your desires and needs. You tell us what type of appraisal you would like. The Appraisal “types” are all just wording not the real type of appraisal you will get.
All appraisals are “Values of Opinions”. We will do our best to give you a fair market value of your doll. What it is worth and what you can sell it for are two different things. Please understand that. If you are not sure what kind you want feel free to give us a call.
All appraisals can all be done through the Internet.
