We are one of the world's most-established collectibles dealers, having been in this business since 1975. Our reputation is indeed spotless.

Please provide as much information as possible, since the more we know about your item the more accurate our appraisal will be.

To submit a photo of your collectible, save it as a JPG image file, attach it to an e-mail and send to jpo@olympus.net. Please do not send photos, or other materials, by U.S. Mail unless they are copies that you do not want returned.

The appraisal fee is just $10.00 per item. We accept Visa, MasterCard or Discover, and your credit card data is secure with us. We are well-established, having been in this same business since 1975. State sales tax will be added to Washington orders.

If you prefer to give your credit card details by phone, just call us at (360) 385-1200 and we'll take the billing information personally. Call between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Pacific Time (M-F).

However, the appraisal itself is NOT done on the phone — only by e-mail or postal mail.

Our service is 100% guaranteed to satisfy or there will be no charge. If your item is beyond our research abilities, we will notify you accordingly. There is no charge whatsoever if we are unable to appraise your item.

Important Notes: All of the information supplied by Osborne Enterprises, including valuations, is compiled from the most reliable sources. Though every effort will be made to be accurate, errors are still possible. We will not be held responsible for losses which may occur in the purchase, sale, or other transaction of items because of information provided by us. We keep our appraisal fee very low by limiting the research to providing just that: an appraisal of current value. Please do not request additional correspondence and details. This includes inquiries as to how many were made; when and by whom; do we know anyone in your area that will buy from you; do counterfeits exist and if so how can they be identified; etc., etc. A small service charge may be applicable if we are required to go to extra time and effort because of incorrect information supplied to us. Appraisals are done in the order received, and most are done in about a week. If you don't receive a reply within two weeks, call or e-mail us again. You may have entered an invalid address, or failed to send a S.A.S.E. In either case, we will hold your appraisal until we hear from you. Manufactured, mass-produced items are appraised with values based on near-mint condition only. Since you have access to the item, and we do not, proper evaluation requires making an appropriate price reduction to allow for wear, aging, and flaws. This is an appraisal service only. We are not a brokerage. As such, please to not ask us who will buy your item. We do offer a collectibles site where anything can be offered for sale at set prices. Click here to go there. Otherwise, there are numerous online auction sites available that may meet your needs.
