Autograph Appraisals are a specialty that Estoric performs for discriminating clients. We offer three types of appraisals:
- Insurance Replacement Value: This appraisal provides a value equal to what it would cost to replace an existing item in your collection or inventory. Retail Value.
- Fair Market Value: This appraisal provides a value as to what the specific item or items would sell for at a well-publicized auction.
- Liquidation Value: This appraisal usually used in Bankruptcy action is the price the item would bring at a quick sale.
All of our appraisals follow Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice, commonly referred to by the acronym USPAP, which are considered the quality control standards applicable for real property, personal property, intangibles, and business valuation appraisal analysis and reports in the United States and its territories.
