Can the Museum Appraise Objects for Me?

No. Although the North Carolina Museum of History welcomes artifact donations, it does not provide authentication and appraisal services.

An object's value often can be determined by consulting one of the many price guides available in libraries and bookstores. Some price guides provide approximate values for different types of objects; others offer specific price information.
