Once in awhile we receive items from our members that we are unable to assess due to the uniqueness of the item, and or material of the item. Our Worthologists are experts, but in some cases it is impossible for them to give an accurate evaluation without seeing the item first hand. In cases where it is necessary to receive a first hand review WorthPoint will compensate the member by evaluating another item free of charge.
Evaluations are only as good as the information provided
It is extremely important members provide as much information as possible about their item. Clear photographs and descriptions of items will greatly aid in a more thorough response from our Worthologists. Here are a few pointers:
When taking pictures of your items make sure you capture the following views:
1) Front and rear
2) Top and bottom
3) Detailed photos of marks, signatures etc.
When writing the description of your item be sure to include the following:
1) Detailed description of the item, including colors, dimensions etc.
2) Assessment on condition, including any cracks, chips, tears, missing pieces etc. Also note if the item is operational (where applicable).
3) For artwork, type of material (canvas, paper, academy board, wood panel, etc.) on which the art was done.
4) History or background of the item, to the extent known.
