Here is a sampling of the many comments we receive.
You apologized for not giving me the news I wanted to hear -- on the contrary, that is exactly what I wanted to know. I bought the shirt to resell in my space at the antique mall, and then was afraid it might be something more than I originally thought. Now I can put it out for sale with no worries, and be able to tell a potential buyer exactly what they are buying. Thank you.
Susan Hofstrand, Ellensbug, WA
I have been a member of your site for years and had some appraisals done back in 2005. This is the second appraisal for me within one week and both were extremely timely. Thank you for another very pleasant transaction.
Gwyn Morris, Warner Robins, GA
Thank you for a wonderful experience. I was very impressed with how fast my inquiry was responded to by the appraiser - M.Baron. He seemed very knowledgable and was easy to understand. He was very thorough and positive even though my piece ended up being a reproduction. I will highly recommend this site to my friends and family.
Lisa Romig, Burtonsville, MD
Very pleased with t,he overall experience. Dori, Thanks for walking me through.

Elizabeth Hoyce, Steuben, ME
Great site! Great service! I feel like the appraiser went the extra mile to find as much info as she could!!Thank you for all your extra time in researching my candlesticks. I tried to find out as much as i could on my own, but not nearly the amount you told me. Thanks again!! you did an outstanding job on my appraisal!!
Lewslie Smith, Medical Lake, WA
I am appreciative of having access to a low cost appraisal service. I have an extensive collection of antique furniture and artwork and this will help me establish value and obtain proper insurance coverage. Nice, personal, conversational approach.
Robert Seay, Summerville, SC
Truly the best appraisal ever received. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience, wow, I was floored by your brilliant appraisal. Thank you very much!
Monique Papy, Ontario, Canada
Tim Alley did another great job. He was very accurate with the value of my Colt Single Action Army revolver. Just a note for Tim, remember my Bislely you appraised, well I did buy original grips for it as you recommended. The Bisley looks great!
Rick H., Florence, KY
I just want to say how happy I was with this Appraiser. She did not rush, was very professional, and put so much effort into this, that I KNOW I got my money's worth! I now know I have found the right place! She was EXCELLENT!
Nancy Sterling, Plainfield, CT
In both internet and telephone communications, I found this to be an outstanding organization with which to do business. The comments written by the appraiser showed an excellent knowledge of the artist and art and the market.
Arlene McGuire, Soughtgate, MI
Thank you for all the info, it was very thorough and I wasn't expecting that. It could not have been any easier.
Gia Schifano, New Hyde Park, NY
I must offer my sincere appreciation for the appraiser's research and comments -- very well done.
Turnbat Ganbold, Director of Museum Disaccensions, Bayangol District Ulaanbaatar Mongolia
So well done. I auctioned with confidence and got $$ value. Well written. Most enjoyable.
Nadine Thomas, Aiken, SC
WOW! What a fantastic service. Quick, easy, reliable, and informative. You could not have done any better. You answered all the questions that I never got to ask.
Shelley Jensen, Westlake Village, CA
Victoria did an excellent job with my doll. She was very informative and was a pleasure with all of her knowledge.
Beth Fields, Norristown, PA
I have been wanting an appraisal for many years and to get such wonderful service from you was indeed rewarding.Thank you for your quick and professional service.
Virginia Bowers,North Fort Myers, FLA
Thanks so much I love this web site! You help us little folks understand the value and history of items I knew nothing about. You made this so much fun and and exciting. My finds are such a big thing for me and you make it so much better.
Farrah Ramirez, San Antonio, Tx
He did a great job! He was not only 'official' in his analysis, but he shared lots of infomation (i.e., how to clean it, light it...more history) than I thought he would. Great job...thank you for your hints on cleaning, lighting the Chinese snuff vase; I truly appreciate it.
Clark Jarrett, Los Angeles, CA
I have turned to your appraisal dept several times now. I can always count on you to give me the information I need to place a value on the pieces in my collection for insurance purposes. Thank you for doing such a thorough job.
Darlene McGowan, Rancho Cordova, Ca
Nowhere on the Internet can you find such outstanding value. Thank you for the very detailed background!
Malcolm Allred, Vicksburg, MS
I am thrilled with Jeffrey Motsinger. His history was wonderful. I cannot praise him enough. Please thank him for all the details on the bur wood cigar box.
Rosemarie Stanford, Pinecrest, FL
Thank you very much. My sense told me to get a second opinion and I am glad I did. You have clarified the doubts I had about the findings of previous online appraisals from other companies. I thank you for your professionalism.
Alex Soto, Elmwood Park, New Jersey
I paid $3.99 for this piece in a flea market and to learn it has a value of $120 is incredible! To know more about the date and making of it will help me resell this item. I am very pleased! Thank you very much! I have another similar piece to have appraised but I was waiting on this one to come back, so I am about to send you another! Thanks so much!
Jennifer Watters, Center Ridge, AR
I want to thank the appraiser that appraised my item. He went to great lengths to give me the full details of where my item came from, how it was used and also the value. I would say that he did an OUTSTANDING job and I plan to use your service many more times. I have already told all my friends about what a great service you have and the Fantastic appraiser I had.
Joseph Cogger, Brainerd, Minnesota
There are many of us who don't have the money to pay the fees quoted by the majority of appraisers. We don't know "what" we have and have no idea of the value. That's why What's It Worth To You is invaluable to us. I have been using the site for almost a year now and, for a price that I can afford, I have received a thorough description of my articles and their value. Last summer, a friend came to me talking about some articles that she had that were left to her when her father died. She had an idea that they were probably valuable but had no idea where to start. I told her to bring them to my home, we'd take pictures with my camera and submit them to WIW2U. Out of this old trunk came a beautiful beaded buckskin dress, beaded moccasins, a blanket that looked like it might be made from a buffalo, a weird looking mans shirt with all this stuff hanging off of it and several other items. We took the pictures, filled out the forms and submitted them to WIW2U. Cost for all the items, $50.($9.95 per item) As always, the response was immediate and very thorough. The appraisers that work with WIW2U are very good and gave us the information that we needed. When I think about the way that we were handling that valuable shirt (casually unfolding and stuffing it back in the trunk), I could faint. It’s turns out that all of the items were extremely valuable. Because of the information that we received from WIW2U we knew "what" we had and a good idea of its value. Armed with this knowledge, we looked and explored and were finally put in contact with a fine arts dealer who lives within a drivable distance from our home. After meeting with him, we left all the items on consignment except for the bear claw ceremonial gloves. We learned that it is against the law to sell such items. He is searching for a museum to donate them to. All of the items have been sold. What we had was a Sioux dress = $30,000, an upper Missouri War Shirt = $150,000, Sioux moccasins = $3,000, buffalo robe = $3,000 and several items of lesser value. THANKYOU!! WIW2U, we could not have done it without you and your wonderful appraisers. You have the best site on the internet and I would recommend your service to anyone (and quite often do). You're the best!!! A very happy customer.........
Cheri Thomas, Pine Grove, CA
I wasted countless hours and weeks searching the web for information on my lamp. It was frustrating. I came here and had what I needed in less than 48 hours. The appraiser seems extremely knowledgeable about my item and gave me his opinion to possible origin. His quick response indicates to me that he knows his antiques. I will be back! Thanks so much.
James Canupp, Jonesville, South Carolina
I was well pleased with the whole process. I have followed your career for many years thru television and websites. I feel very honored to have had you appraise my doll. I can tell you did a great deal of research and I might add that I am extremely pleased with the appraisal. Thank you Judith. One of your biggest fans,
Janet Hanlon, Bradley, Illinois
Sara answered in a day what I could not find on and off over a 1-2 year period. Whether it was appraised at $5 or $500 would not have mattered. It demonstrates a wealth of knowledge and expertise behind your appraisals that will make me come back for more... an outstanding service.
Shawn Genoway, Pompano Beach, Florida
Once Marilyn Visakay was assigned as the 2nd appraiser, the process went very smoothly. She requested info in a timely fashion and provided the information in less than 24 hours -- excellent. Unfortunately, the first appraiser assigned didn't contact or respond. Your staff was quick to respond to this lack of attention and they deserve credit for turning things around. Good historical background and price comparisons for metro and non-metro areas. Good suggestions and info. Very quick turnaround on additional info needed and on actual appraisal. Thanks!
Nancy Mathews, Escanaba, Michigan
I have worked with numerous appraisal sites but I absolutely love yours!! It's fast, affordable, informative and has helped me in my ebay business. I will be using and recommending you!!
Susan Eix, Fremont, Nebraska
Nice site and well worth every penny! Thank you so much for the in-depth information you provided and the suggestions for follow-up appraisals. I enjoyed learning more about my blanket chest and know more than I did before.
Bobbie Wideman, Gilmer, TX
I was impressed with the quick turnaround. Of course, I was pleasantly surprised to find out the value of my piece. It's such a pleasure to have something appraised without having to drive to an antique store and hope that the appraiser is honest. Thank you!
Denise Moreau, Katy, TX
Thanks for a complete job. I am so grateful for this service. We are overwhelmed with disbanding my grandmother’s estate and this appraisal process has been a blessing.
Michael Mahaffey, Clear Lake, IA
I was surprised at how quickly the appraisal was done, and how detailed the appraisal was in such a short time. Top class!! Getting to know about this brooch is something I've wanted to do but never got round to doing. Couldn't face all the research etc. So, thank you very much for the quick and detailed response. I really do appreciate it.
Sandra Laybourn, Millfield, United Kingdom
I had an S&W model 4006 .40 cal semi-automatic pistol appraised by Mr. Tim Eyster through your web site which I found through a yahoo search. First allow me to thank you for providing such a great service on the net! Secondly I will gladly recommend your site to anyone I know needing the service you provide. The appraisal I received was done in an extremely timely manner and professional quality! I am most happy with the decision! If asked to rate your service and site it would receive the top rating possible! Definitely 5-star!!
David Reitberger, Victoria, Texas
Thank you very much. I'll be back--and with more tangable do-able items as time progresses. You do your link with eBay justice. Your service is valuable and fits the modern internet world to a "T". A nice "nitch" to be carving out. Best and Regards,
Tom Bunnell, Detroit Lakes, Minnesota
Perfect! Keep doing what you're doing! This was the best on-line service I've ever gotten.
Dennis McCarthy, Auburn, NY
Don't know what I'd do without you! Thanks once again for an outstanding response.
Malcolm Allred, Vicksburg, MS
What's It Worth to You is a remarkable site! I have recommended the site to many of my family. The site is very helpful and informative. I have used the site 3 times now and plan on it again within the next 2 weeks. Thank you.
Christine Gutierrez, Kentwood, MI
After years of guessing, I got just what I needed from this gentleman: a fast, clear, and specific identification and appraisal of a highly custom item. Nice, nice work. Thanks!
Dale Bradley, Denver, CO
I would just like to thank you for your help with several appraisals (crocks, jugs and a dining room suite) during the past month. We were planning my father's Estate Sale and your appraisers helped me tremendously. In doing research, my brother and I found that antiques dealers were not being honest, many times because they wanted to buy the items themselves. We were having a hard time finding the true value of our items, until I happened upon your website. For the fee of 6 or 7 appraised items, we received nearly $2000! I have given out your web address to many people in the past month. Thanks so much.
Mary Guglielmi, Alexandria, VA
Excellent! I was very happy to find out some details about this piece. I am also pleasantly surprised by the rapid response. I am very *very* happy with your service!
Laura Hicks, Lexington, KY
Not being an antique kind of person and not knowing the value of things this assured me what some people told us it was worth was indeed the case. Not like what some dealers tried to tell us. Thank you very much. With this we now have dealers looking at it for around $4,000.00 now that they know we know what its worth. If I ever have the need to I will use you again, but in the meantime I will recommend you to people I know who do have a need for your service.
Pete Scalia, Batavia, N.Y.
My Tiffany tray was appraised at $500.00 and I sold it within a month for $550.00. I was very pleased with the appraisal.
Susan Ashburner, Va. Beach, VA
I have been searching for information on this item for a year with no luck. The appraiser responded within a few hours with not only the value but a complete history and the process used to manufacture my piece. I am very impressed with the professionalism of the appraiser and the ease of using the appraisal process. I will certainly be using this again for many items I want to know more about and I will definitely pass it on to others.
Deborah Bruhwel, Newport News, Virginia
Great service for affordable price. Could not be improved upon. Best value for the money on the Net.
Maida Spaulding, Hailey, Idaho
This is the second time that I have used your services and each time I have been pleased with the reply. I have already recommended your service to my friends and family. I was pleasantly surprised that so much information was provided for my vases. I really didn't expect much because all there was to go on was Italy and a number. Thanks for exceeding my expectations.
Eileen O'Neill, Winnipeg, Manitoba
Thank you for the information. I am very pleased with the outcome and I am sure my friend will be very happy as well. I will definitely use the service again and recommend the service to others as well.
Jane Martin, Andover, MA
I was very happy with the appraiser. I was not getting anywhere with the local jeweler. He (local jeweler) was very evasive and just wanted to have me let him sell it for me. I have researched a lot of jewelry, that is how I found your website, and I knew that the pendant was made of plat., but the jeweler would not tell me. Your appraiser was timely, very informative, and I would recommend your site to friends and family. Thank You.
Debbie Owens, Cincinnati, Ohio
Thank you very much for taking the time to give me such an immense amount of information about this document and the Brig Sally. The history and the significance are fascinating!
Malcolm Allred, Vicksburg, MS
Scott did an outstanding job in the appraisal of my relish dish. He was accommodating and patient with me in providing him with the necessary information. Thank you very much. Your appraisal was worth a great deal more than I paid.
Joyce Maxwell, Afton, MN
Your Customer Service Reps. are outstanding, any ambiguities were cleared promptly and professionally.
April Ray, Pomona, CA
This site and service are fabulous! It's fun and informative. When filling out appraisal request it teaches you to pay closer attention to your items and how to examine them.
Stephanie Smith, Joplin, Missouri
I liked this appraisal. It was informative, straightforward, insightful, but not stuffy. I enjoyed the insight (which I have experienced) regarding those at the auction houses being loathe to be encumbered with such items. The tone was pleasant, from someone interested in what she did and those of us on the other end. Thanks.
Dexter Garnier, San Francisco, CA
You've made my year! I have always thought the painting was beautiful, but didn't know anything about the painter. Wonderful service, outstanding price for a service of this quality.
Elizabeth Kennedy, Mission Viejo, CA
Your timeliness was exceptional. I can't believe you did this over New Year's Day! I will definitely use this service again in the future and will recommend it to friends. Thanks.
Keith McFarland, Camden, SC
An appraisal returned to me within hours of submission, what a superb service.
Frances Harris, Parkstone Poole, UK
I was given additional information about the Fenton dish. The appraisal was very thoughtful, accurate and complete, in my opinion. I will recommend your service to anyone having items they know or believe have value of 60.00 or more. This is the value I think would make the cost for appraisal a good buy for the re-seller. For insurance purpose absolutely get these appraisals!
Mary Hickling-Dunham, China Grove, NC
I was really suprised when I recieved a very detailed description of where my items originated and things like that. I only really expected just a value price. Thank you for all the great information about my china set. I really appreciate it! You did a great job, and made it feel more personal than just getting a quote from a computer.
Susan Fowler, Elsberry, MO
I'd like to thank any and all who were involved in this appraisal process. When I started I didn't have a clue what I was doing (I'm comparatively new to the internet and what I can do with it). It certainly easier to have an appraisal done this way than trying to pack up our very delicate tea set and send it away for appraisal. We do not have easy access to appraisers where we live.
Lynne Hodgson, Creighton, SASK
Thank you so much for your appraisal of this item. You have given me the confidence and tools I needed to sound intelligent about an item I had no information on. stamp-appraisals.com and it's appraisers have saved me hundreds of dollars. Thank you so very muc
