If you’ve ever wondered just how much that dusty old autograph album inherited from a great aunt could be worth - or indeed the WWI medals languishing in a box in your loft - a valuation event at Wolverhampton Auction Rooms in early September could see you find out.
Taking place on 4th and 5th September between 10am and 4pm, the event will see experts from local auction house Cuttlestones on hand to offer a professional valuation free of charge. The focus on Monday 4th September will be coins, medals and militaria whilst on the Tuesday 5th September toys, books and memorabilia will be the order of the day. Sale room manager, Rich Forrester, says:
“When people think of valuable antiques, they may have large pieces of furniture, old paintings or jewellery in mind - and might not think they have anything of particular value. However, collectors are interested in a hugely diverse range of items, many of which were not especially valuable when they were first produced.
“Things like rare books, war medals and even toys can be worth surprising figures. And it’s not just age and condition that comes into play; if an item is especially rare – for example a first edition of a popular 20th Century novel – it can even command good sums if damaged.”
The valuation event will take place at Wolverhampton Auction Rooms at Number 1 Clarence Street between 10am and 4pm. Appointments are not necessary – for more details on Cuttlestones’ services and to see results of previous sales please take a look around our website.
