I have something that I think is historic. How old is it? What’s it worth?
The Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Seminole Indian Museum does not perform identifications, authentications, or valuations. You can find a certified appraiser at the American Society of Appraisers. An auction resource like Christie’s or Sotheby’s - or even an online auction site like Ebay can help you learn more about the value of your object.
