Learn the basics of identifying and appraising art, antiques, jewelry,coins, and collectibles. Get tips on what makes things valuable and the best ways to sell them. Examine things like lithophane, trench art, U.S. Zone china, a U.S. 3 cent nickel, precious gemstones, mourning jewelry & German silver. No pictures or books in this class, everything is “hands on”. Bring one item, no larger than a shoe box to the first class, research its value on your own, then compare your results with the instructors at the second class. Bring a magnifying glass. Instructor David Schlueter is a certified appraiser.
