It is a long-proven fact that maritime items whose provenance has been established (that is, whose origin has been determined, say, by having been recovered from a shipwreck whose identity is known) possess a much higher value than items that have been scrounged from scrap yards and from dismantled ships. One-of-a-kind items are worth more than the run-of-the-mill. Furthermore, the value of a maritime artifact is increased dramatically by a shipwreck's renown, popularity, or historic significance.
Gary keeps current on the rising prices of maritime artifacts by referring to sales, auctions, catalogues, and shops that specialize in nautical memorabilia.
Whether you have an elegant china plate, a simple brass porthole, an aged wooden deadeye, a modern hydraulic telegraph, or an exquisite piece of jewelry, you should have it appraised - for sale, for loan, or for the purpose of adequate insurance.
Write for a fee schedule. Rates are hourly and are not based upon the value of the items to be appraised.
