My mom had her faults but if she’d been in charge of this stuff, I’d be a lot richer right now:
We contacted appraiser Simeon Lipman for an updated appraisal in today’s market. At the time of the appraisal, it was unclear whether the objects were the only surviving examples. Since then, however, it has been verified that they are the only examples, and therefore according to Lipman the value would increase substantially.
Value Range: $8,000 – $10,000 (2005)
Updated Value: $30,000 – $50,000 (2013)
