1898 signature antique quilt top with 493 different names 3 are former presidents
As shown, is an actual "signature fundraiser" quilt top that started in Memphis Tennessee in 1898 and appears to have traveled all the way up into Georgetown Kentucky. Quilt top measures 75x64 inches in size. All names appear to be embroidered on the quilt. Included in these names are three former Presidents, Thomas Jefferson James Madison, and Grover Cleveland along with other note-able personal from history. We spent eleven hours actually going over the complete quilt block by block and making a list of all names, cities, and dates. All 493 different names are provided for you in the shown 3 photo's in a typed out list, broken down block by block of the quilt. The quilt top has a total of 72 squares, 9 down, 8 across. Only 3 remain still blank. Had these three squares been filled with names, the quilt would have exceeded over 500 different names on it. As previously mentioned the quilt started it's journey 122 years ago in Memphis, with who we believe was a Ms. Maggie Crenshaw. We have been able to trace it by searching the names in the list as it appears to have traveled out of Memphis across Tennessee to Nashville up through Glasgow, and Owensboro Kentucky, and appears to have stopped some 34 years later in 1932 in Georgetown Kentucky. The date "1932" does appear a few times on the quilt, as well as the city names of Owensboro, and Georgetown. We have verified the names of 8 people in our town of Glasgow Kentucky. Oddly enough, at the time of these people living, they all lived on the same street in a very wealthy portion of town. They were also people of great importance in our community. As mentioned, the quilt top was never finished, so it remains a quilt "top". It has been extremely well cared for, and has no stains, rips, or tears. So for it's age and to be fabric, it is in incredible condition. I do have correspondence with the International Quilt Museum in Lincoln Nebraska showing were they immediately offered payment of $5,000 to acquire the quilt. Currently at the present time we have held off on selling it to them for that price, as we have received other appraisals showing it's value between $15,000 to $20,000.
Estimate: $10,000 - $15,000

Fossilized scorpion in amber
Good Morning!: I’ve reviewed you on-line site information concerning fossil appraisal and I’d like some additional information as to cost based on the information I’m able to provide you. Bottom line is I have a piece of amber that holds a completely preserved scorpion from several million years ago or so I was told by a geology professor who gave it to me years ago as a gift. I’m attempting to determine its value if that’s even possible and would be interested in selling it to someone with this particular kind of interest. The piece is relatively small in size and measures 3½ inches tall by 1 ½ inches in thickness. I’ve been told that this is an extremely rare piece that may have considerable value, so I’m looking for a professional appraisal and, ultimately, some type of authenticity documentation. I took it to a local rocks and gems dealer and he has no doubt as to its authenticity (real amber) but couldn’t provide me with a value other than to suggest it was worth a considerable amount of money “to the right collector”. Price would be dependent on the buyer’s willingness to have the piece since there are no hard-n-fast market similarities. The individual I received it from is, again, was a professor at the University of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff Arizona and is most likely deceased. That was over seven years ago and I don’t even recall his name. I have no idea as to where the piece originated from and actually know very little about it. I’ve attached a couple of pictures of the piece I’ve described. I appreciate your time. Thanks!! Jim Brown 2841 E. San Tan Street Chandler, AZ. 85225 Cell 623-980-9682
Estimate: $30 - $80
