Appraisal Fees

We charge a flat hourly rate for all appraisals, based solely on the amount of time required at your site to examine and describe the mineral specimen or collection.  You are not charged for all time required for research, and for compiling and preparing the appraisal report.  This is included at no additional cost.  Fees may be negotiable and less depending on the complexity of the appraisal. Any additional work, such as revising prior appraisal reports, or preparing other deliverables is charged at a lower rate.

See our How We Charge page for a detailed discussion of our appraisal fees.
