Welcome to Weiskopf Appraisal Services, Inc.
We have all been mesmerized at one point or another by television shows that feature ordinary peoples bringing in objects from their homes and discovering that they were living with treasure.
That nice vase that grandma passed down is all of a sudden declared Ming Dynasty Porcelain; an old, rusted rifle bought at an estate sale reveals itself to be the gun that General Custer last stood with; the old chess set found at a school turns out to be hand carved by Davey Crockett.
You get the idea.
How are those valuations made, and by who, you may wonder. Now, you can pull back the curtain to reveal a true appraisal expert.
