            Out of town or out of country clients may begin the discussion by sending detailed photographs, either 35mm or digital jpeg format. Please contact us prior to taking the photographs and we will give you technical advice for best results. Even with high quality photographs, it may be necessary to ship the items for final study before a proper appraisal can be given.
