I bought a mystery trunk at an estate sale, it had old books, small paintings, and some other items.
But at the bottom of the trunk was

Is dated "1845"
That's almost 170 years old.!!!
I wonder if it's worth anything??
And how would I even find out??
Any ideas??

Hello QuebecGirl

Sorry I just seen your reply,
What's an "Onde"

I wouldn't know if it's worth anything, it's hard to find a value in this, I've had no luck so far. lol

Howdy!

I love old paper! Nice find -

Google 1800's Masonic Certificates - or Freemasons collecting - this will give you a start. The folks on collecting boards are a great help, just like TN. ;)

Look at completed Masonic Certificates auctions on eBay.

A lot of value will depend on flaws ie stains, tears etc.

Then look at the specifics - how many signatures, what degree (32 seems highest) anyone famous sign?

Is the lodge unique? Such as issued by "Negro Masonic Association"? Is the Lodge still active?

Hope this helps!

Hello,
Sorry for not replying sooner,
It's in pretty good condition
Considering it's over 175 years old lol,
It has the original paper seals, and 7or8 signatures
