Re: Luther P. Jackson Papers - Appraising Your Find
In Response To: Re: Luther P. Jackson Papers - Anyone Researched? ()
They probably have some value. You should consider contacting the Virginia State University Archives to advise them of your discovery and see if they're interested.
You might want to locate a local appraiser of historical manuscripts to get an estimate of their potential value.
Or if you can't find someone locally, you might want to contact Philip J. Merrill, a professional appraiser of African American memorabilia. He's also an author of a book on collecting African American memorabilia.
Below is a link to his website. Click on "Services" and then towards the bottom of the page is a link to his Service Request Form. I have never had anything appraised by him and don't know him personally, but do know that he was on Antiques Roadshow, and is currently listed as an appraiser by them.
