Specialist valuations

As the collectables market is diverse, with new niches appearing all the time, specialised services are available to clients wishing to value new and unusual collectables. Cuttlestones has forged relationships with expert consultants all across the country with a particular focus on stamps, jewellery, coins, militaria and sporting memorabilia.


Insurance valuations
