Historical Documents

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.

Documents and autographs can be valuable as well, when associated with an important event or personality. We have managed many important collections and groupings of documents over the past two decades. A partial listing of personalities associated with these documents include John Adams, Theodore Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Jackson, Ulysses S. Grant, Queen Elizabeth, John F. Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and many others. If you have documents or Photographs you would like to sell or have appraised, simply drop by our Beverly Hills location, call to make an appointment or fill out our convenient online inquiry form and a representative will contact you directly.
