Stamp Collection appraisals are available for several purposes. A written appraisal suitable for various situations is done by Mr. Kimmerly himself. Appointments are usually necessary, so please phone ahead. In rare cases, Mr. Kimmerly will travel for appraisals at the customer’s expense. A written appraisal includes a general description of the whole collection and a specific description of better single items.

Cash Value Appraisal
Most commonly done for estate purposes or in other situations when the current cash value of a stamp collection is needed. A Cash Value Appraisal is our offer to purchase the material for the total price given.

Price: The greater of $50 or 2% of the determined cash value.
This amount is refundable if your material is sold to us at the time of appraisal.

Replacement Value Appraisal
Usually done for insurance purposes, either at the time of taking out a policy or sometimes for a claim. The value determined is the estimated cost of replacing the collection as it exists at the time of the appraisal.

Price: 1-1/2% of the determined replacement value, minimum $50.

Ownership of the material submitted for Appraisal must be established to our satisfaction.
