I have a modest collection of African trade beads and would like to know how to price and market them. I bought then while living in Port Sudan, Sudan at the local bead market over 20 years ago.

Most of the collection consists of singles, though I do have a full strand or two. I have a number of milefiore beads as well as some amber, chevrons, etc

I want to price these fairly for myself and the buyer. My fear is that I may have some very rare beads within this collection and sell them for several times below what they should sell for.

How much should I expect to pay for an appraisal? If you know of any appraisers in my area that would be very helpful. I live north of Orlando

Thanks!
