Tom Lecky is a Certified Member of the Appraisers Association of America.

Tom offers collectors, fiduciaries, accountants, attorneys, insurance companies, and institutions a full range of appraisal services for books, autographs, manuscripts  and archives. Formal written appraisals of single items and entire libraries adhere to current standards and practices. 

We appraise property for a variety of purposes:

Estate Tax
Financial Planning
Charitable Donation
Equitable Distribution
Fair Market Value

We do not charge for informal valuations or for valuing material that we are going to buy. Fees vary for written appraisals based on the size and scope of the project.

We help institutions address a variety of issues relating to their holdings, and understand the responsibilities of institutional caretakers to properly manage their collections. These services range from appraisals, collection development, and deaccessioning to advice on preservation and conservation.
