We specialize in the correspondence of "household famous" people, such as the Presidents, Revolutionary War and Civil War figures, famous writers, important scientists, notable women and African-Americans, prominent business leaders, and aviators. We also buy historical letters and archives with unusual content, such as a diary of a 49er.



I am one of the very few members of the Appraisers Association of America certified to appraise historic documents, manuscripts and letters. I am USPAP qualified to do appraisals for estate, donation and insurance purposes.
