    Hi Chuck-

         We can do official written insurance appraisals at Saxquest. I've been a music instrument appraiser for various Antiques Roadshow/Trash for Treasure events in the St. Louis area and Saxquest is well steeped in the vintage saxophone market on a daily basis.

    Our charge for written insurance appraisals are $25 per instrument. The appraisals are sent to you and also kept here on file in case your agent requires the appraisal to be sent directly from the appraiser. Also, we offer lifetime free updates as a benefit to the client. Check out our web site at for more details and feel free to contact us at the email on the site if you want to talk further about getting this done.

      And if the Grafton is in the condition you state it is, Mark's appraisal will be WELL worth the effort to aquire it. These horns can be worth a pretty penny in good cosmetic and working order.

      A Saxquest appraisal will appeal greatly to serious buyers.
