Autographs & Photographs

Autograph collections, historical correspondence, ephemera and old photographs can have a great deal of value. Louis Daguerre is credited with inventing the first commercially viable form of photography, the Daguerreotype. A simple Daguerreotype has very little value, but when coupled with an important factor such as a notable “sitter” or famous photographer, it can be quite valuable.

Autographs of Historical Figures, Military Leaders, Presidents & Politicians, Sports Figures, Scientists & Inventors, Celebrities and the Infamous are all of interest to us. The historical nature of the signed item, the material on which it is written, and the context of the correspondence can all be as important to the value of your autograph as the autograph itself. We have bought and sold extensive autograph collections and are always looking for our next interesting acquisition. If you have an autograph or autograph collection that you are interested in selling or having appraised, please visit our Beverly Hills location, call to make an appointment or fill out our convenient online Inquiry Form and a representative will contact you promptly.

We buy and sell all Antique Photographs.
