I am looking to appraise a door that was at the Henry Ford House in Detroit. What is the best way to go about it?

Answer

If you own something that you think has historic significance, you will need to back up your claim. Since it is not obvious by merely looking at the door, you need a way to prove that it did, indeed, belong to Ford.

Locate any paperwork that you have to back up your claim. This would be a receipt, a bill of sale, letters, or any documents that you have to support your claim.
