Indian Artifact Appraisals

Indian Artifact Grading Authority

We offer a comprehensive and professional Indian artifact appraisal service for those wishing to assess a fair market value for their Native American Artifacts. Because of our experience in the hobby, we have been afforded the opportunity to acquire tremendous market knowledge through public sales, private sales and our reference library which we can put to work for you. We accept all categories and types of Native American Artifacts for appraisal.

We currently offer three types of appraisal services

On-Site Appraisals

If you have a collection of artifacts that you would like appraised in person, please contact us for on-site availability dates.  Once an appointment date is confirmed we will travel to your location and perform the collection appraisal service.  We offer special rates on large groupings of artifacts and entire collections, contact us today for a free consultation and service quote.
