I am a certified personal property appraiser with Certified Appraisal Guild of America (CAGA). And, if you are looking for a certified appraisal your corkscrew, or your collection, I can offer that service. These items need to examined, handled, and researched. These appraisals meet the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) standards and meet IRS requirements.
If you are looking to have your corkscrew collection appraised by a certified appraiser with over 15 years experience in working with corkscrews, feel free to contact me, or visit my company website Penobscot Bay Appraisals, to learn about rates and to coordinate travel time, as the collection will need to be examined in person. I am more than willing to travel to your location (nationwide) to conduct these appraials
That said, I am also more than willing to offer information on an more informal basis using your pictures and descriptions.
Feel free to send pictures, or even a good description.
I will do my best to help with age, origins, and histories.
