We do written valuations for insurance and probate.There is a minimum charge of $250 per hour, including our traveling time. If the collection is sold to us, the valuation fee is refunded. Please contact us today to arrange a time.


Medal mounting

We provide a medal mounting service, including swing mounting and court mounting. We can also provide minature and full size replica medals and ribbons. Contact us for a quote.


Swing mountedSwing mounting is when the ribbon is attached to a pin or brooch and the medals are able to freely swing from the ribbon.





Court mountedCourt mounting is where the medals and their ribbons are fixed to a backing board so that they are rigid, and the ribbons can be easily seen behind the medal between the suspender and the top of the medal.
