Placing a value on most antiques & collectibles is an activity very similar to appraising real estate.  Both are based on "comps" or "comparables", meaning that in this case, you must find similar items that have actually sold and then compare prices.  Although it is possible to find the exact same identical item as yours, many collectibles were made in small quantities or as unique pieces. In these cases you can compare with matching results that are similar, just as you do when appraising a home.

It is important to note that formal appraisals only use prices that have been realized.  In other words, if an item has not sold and a price was based on emotional reasons or wishful thinking, then it cannot be a valid measure of its true market value.  Only actual sales records, most preferably from a live auction where bidders can compete with each other for an item in an unbiased way, can be taken seriously as comps.  This is how professional appraisers conduct their research.

Our price guide works the exact same way.  We have gathered millions of actual and real auction records on all kinds or types of items from hundreds of reputable auction houses.  You can simply type what you are trying to appraise and instantly get actual images of all related sales records.  You can then select the ones that are most similar to your own item and view them in more detail on a separate page for a final price determination or evaluation.  All results come with specific information, such as when & where an item was sold, a full description and, of course, the price it sold.

ANYWHERE & ANYTIME  -  Our values guide can be accessed on any device connected to the Internet, including your home or office PC or laptop, your tablet and your smart phone with any browser. All of our content and special features work the same way on all devices and there is no need to use any special apps or download any software.

Our records are constantly updated with the most recent sales results and our service is easy and intuitive to use.  There is no need to send us any photos or lengthy descriptions.  All of the information you will need is right there on your screen.  You can also print these results for future reference or include them in a formal appraisal.
