What does this mean?

Hi James,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The gallery value is a retail price; the value Mearto provides is a fair-market value for auction and those prices are usually at least 1/2-1/3 of a retail value. A check of recent auction records for the artist show his nature photos are only bringing a few hundred dollars at auction, at most.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

Thomas Mangelsen (American, b 1946)
Great Gray Owl, 1978

*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.
