Examples Of Appraisal / Information Requests We Receive

All of these e-mail messages are authentic.  Most are unedited other than removing the email address or names to protect the identities of the innocent, and to protect these potential sources of merchandise.  The vast majority came with no pictures.  What you see is what I got.

This is just a small sampling and in no way fully represents or adequately conveys the magnitude or volume of these types of things that I receive on a daily basis.  

I am looking for volunteers to help answer them.  Who knows, you might be able to turn it into the next Kovels, Harry Rinker, or Ann Landers of Antiques "Answer Man" type situation. 

I want to be an intermediary to bring valuable valuables to you, but on one condition I get a $ 300,000 advance payment, deducted from my commissions later, in relationships with people who have things dating back to ancient times and are valued at millions of dollars. My job is to convince them to sell these rare holdings.
If you agree, please contact me and send me a representative as soon as possible to sign a contract and guarantee the money paid.

I own a very old sewing machine my grandmother gave to me and is in

I saw this in a resale shop recently and wondered is it a rare item? Is it valuable. It is basically a white cylindrical metal casing that contains a grey stell agitator. There is an electric motor that powers the thing. 1 hose that apparently acts to allow emptying of the tub or what I have called the metal casing. The model looks like M-67 or something but is worn down.

Please advise.


I have a man who has visited my yard sale, he owns an antique can opener from probably the 1800-1900's.  We would like to know the value.

I will try to describe it. It is a hand can opener 5 1/2" long and it's cast iron it was painted black originally, it has 2 steel rivets, holding the one piece steel blade.  The handle has a loop look.

I would greatly appreciate any information you would have especially retail or market value.  He doesn't want to sell it,but would like to know value.  If there is a website that would help with history and prices that would be fine.

Thank You for your time,

Hi Carole and Larry,

I came across your website and although you do not seem interested in a sewing machine from the 1940’s, I did have a question regarding mine.  If you could be kind enough, could you give me an estimate of how much one would be worth?  It is in excellent, running condition and has the Brand “Universal” inscribed on it, as well as the Mark “Deluxe”.  Once again, it is from the 1940’s.  Also, if it says Universal, is that classified as a Singer, or is it it’s own brand?

Your time is greatly appreciated,

During a recent trip back east to see my father he gave me two old irons that
come to be around the 1850 to 1900 range.  One I have been able to find out
is a char-coal iron with the char-coal still in it from the last time used. 
The other is a two piece model with the words ASBESTOS SADIRON on it. 
Haven't found out about this one yet but am thinking the asbestos part of it
must be brand name.

Both antique irons are in rough shape however a good heirloom to pass down to
our children. 

What I am asking from you is how do I go about cleaning both of these up and
finding out about the one marked ASBESTOS SADIRON.

Thank you for your help.  It is greatly appreciated.

I saw you were interested in antiques online, although you website says you are primarily interested in mechanical devices. I am writing to you then for advice.  I own an authentic Franklin Simon’s Co 100% Black Cashmere Long Coat that is in PERFECT condition and never worn.  I inherited it and though it was a nice coat to wear around but before I did I took a look at the label and decided to do some research on it.  Do you know anything about this coat and if it’s worth anything?  And if so who would be interested in buying it.  I can send you pictures that I took with my digital camera, if you would like.

Any suggestions or advice would be much appreciated,

I have acquired a Whirlpool washer. I believe it is from the 50's, but I called Whirlpool & they said it was from 1967. I don't recall any washers like this one around then.

It's electric, but has the double rollers on top to drain the water out of the clothes. It is round and about 5 ft high. Rollers on top, feed through automatically. I believe that it is white enamel paint. Has a hose for water drainage, but not a hook up for water to fill it.

If there is anything you can do to help me with identifying this item. My husband is wanting to sell & if it was anything else antique I would consider keeping it, but we have no room for it.

Thank you for taking the time to read this & hope to hear from you soon.

I have a small,four burner wood cook stove,  It was given to me when I was 17
yrs. old.  My first husband forced me to learn how to bake in this small
appliance.  I finally mastered.  The stove had been in his family for years. 
Not only did I use it for cooking, it also heated the home in the cold
months.  It is not ornate.  It is 19" deep;23" wide and 29" high.  It is all
black except the oven door has a square of enamel/ceramic front.  How old is
this?  Is it valuable?

grandfather' of the 1850' least that is as far back as we
know......not having purchased it we have no idea as to it's value.  I have
been asked to put it on Ebay, but have no idea as to the reserve price I
should set.

Any ideas?

I have come across an unusual little machine and loathe to go to ebay for several reasons.  One, its not a true indicator because it only reflects who wants to buy what that particular day.  Two, you can list something one week and not have one bid and the next week you may go off the charts.  Could I just ask one question please?  A little green GE similar to a Featherweight but with alot of singer marked accessories.  Im stymied.

  I was given a beautiful sewing machine of some sort.  I was told that it was used to  sew leather, but I had my cobbler come and look at it and he said it was not used for leather.  It is an antique made by Wheeler, and Wilson MFGC. in New York, and they also have on the plate of the machine Bridgeport conn.  It was made in the year 1867 which was before or after the civil warm.
    Our cobbler believes it was used to make hats.  Would you have any idea.  I was told that it is valuable.  I was thinking of either selling it or selling it to the Smithsonian, or checking out Sotheby's.   What do you suggest?  Would appreciate hearing from you.  Thank you.  Looking to hear from you.

We've found in our attic a Universal Knife Cleaning Machine by Landers, Frary and Clark, New Britian, Conn, USA.

There is no pat. date on it. It was wrapped in a 1934 newspaper and was used but in sound condition so I figure it must be at least 100 years old.  

How much do these things sell for?
