    Mr. Merrill

    I have had the privilege of meeting you many years ago at a book signing at Enoch Pratt Library in downtown Baltimore. I am a huge Antiques Road Show and now a fan of Chesapeake Collectibles. I look forward to seeing your appraisals of African American items in both shows.

    I am interested in having you appraise a few African American items. If you are not available I would appreciate a recommendation for someone reputable. I am a native Baltimorian that still lives in the city. So I would like someone local m

    In addition I have some Native American items but I am unsure if this is a part of your expertise. If not I would appreciate any referrals you may have for my Native American items also.

    Thanking you in advance/respectfully
