|Have Something to Sell?|
The most important factor affecting the value of a note is it's condition or grade. On rarer notes, a single grade can vary in price by hundreds of dollars. Although there are specific criteria for each grade, grading must be considered an art and not a science. The whole note must be examined under controlled conditions in order to view all of the subtleties necessary for a proper grade. Every dealer and collector has their own favored method of examining a note which can take several years to develope.
I receive many requests for values, mostly from the informal collector or someone who has happened into the possession of a note. The verbal descriptions provided are typically enough to come within one or two grades of the note's TRUE grade. Thus I can provide a rough estimate of value.
If you are interested in selling your note, I must personally examine the note in order to determine the proper grade and make an accurate offer. Following is my requested procedure for purchasing notes.
If you are concerned, please consider the following.
