Online Valuations
The Market Is Changing. What Are Your Items Worth Today?

Sometimes time, distance, or other factors prevent you from bringing your items to the appraiser, or bringing the appraiser to your home. In these instances, perhaps an Online Appraisal may represent the quickest and easiest way to obtain a value on your items. In our opinion a Hands-On Appraisal is almost always preferable to an Online Appraisal, but we recognize that there are instances where an Online Appraisal can be helpful in providing you with a quick valuation or authentication, or some general guidance as to whether your item(s) are good, great, or not very valuable at all.

Online Appraisals can be especially helpful in such instances where:

  • An individual is seeking to establish the authenticity or value on something they have just purchased.
  • A dealer is looking for help in pricing new inventory.
  • A collector is looking for the current market value of a collection.
  • Or someone is in need of a quick appraisal for Insurance, Inheritance, Legal, or Estate purposes.

And we often perform this service online...offer you two quick and easy options:

  • Online eMail Authentication & Valuation
  • Written USPAP-compliant Appraisal on our letterhead.

You decide the approach that's best for you.




Online eMail Authentications & Valuations...
The Fastest and Least Expensive Approach
This Online eMail Authentication & Valuation approach can be done entirely on the Internet by sending us digital images of your items...in 3 very simple steps:

Step #1: Digital Images: Provide us with a clear digital image of each individual item you are seeking a value on, by sending it to our email address (info@michaelivankovich.com). The digital images should include a close-up image and include the entire object. If you don't have access to a digital camera, you may send a good quality photograph(s) through the mail, along with all the required information and payment. Please provide an eMail address for our eMail response, as it will not be sent via US mail.

Step #2 - Item Specifics: Tell us about your item(s):

  • Describe the Item…Tell us what it is, and any important details that will help us in the appraisal process.
  • Name of Maker, Manufacturer, Artist, etc. (if known).
  • Size...Measure the item and provide dimensions, including "Height x Width x Depth".
  • Condition Report...Describe the condition as best possible. Describe any and all damage, blemishes, flaws, chips, cracks, and anything else that may impact value. If you don't provide a Condition Report, by default we will assume the item is in "undamaged and unblemished condition", which may or may not accurately reflect its value.
  • Marking or Signature: Tell us how the item is marked and identified. Include a picture of the marking, if possible.
  • Other Comments...Tell us anything else special about the item that will help us to ascertain its value.

Step #3 - Payment: Payment Terms are as follows:

  • $25.00 for the first item, $20.00 for each subsequent item.
  • Hourly rates are available on 10 or more items.
  • PayPal Payments: Use applicable button below. For 3 or more item valuations, please log onto to www.paypal.com and send appropriate payment to: ivankovich@wnutting.com.
