Rod Smith, Appraiser with International Trophy Room Appraisals, was very helpful, informative, and efficient at providing me with an accurate appraisal which was instrumental in receiving a settlement for my Big Horn Sheep Taxidermy Mount which unfortunately was lost in a home fire. I con recommend his appraisal services.
Confronted with arranging placements of a family’s 1960s East African trophy collection, serendipity led me to Rod Smith who specializes in Valuation of Taxidermy as Certified Appraiser and Owner of International Trophy Room Appraisals. Professionally very able and efficient, he prepared a finely presented catalogue and both Fair Market and Orderly Liquidation Valuation Appraisals. Rod’s comprehensive documents, knowledge, and guidance is important for suitable placements, including for related collectibles.
I fortunately hired Certified Taxidermy Appraiser, Rod Smith after I lost a family heirloom in significant negative plumbing event at my residence. Rod only appraises taxidermy and I believe his expertise and Certified Appraisal was instrumental in me getting paid the full amount of his Replacement Cost Valuation from my insurance company. The insurance company’s original offer was far before I hired Rod Smith as my expert. I can recommend Rod Smith as a professional Taxidermy Appraiser.
I just wanted to thank you for doing the appraisal on the Simon’s collection. She forwarded me the appraisal and have added the extra coverage to their policy. I only cost $88 to insure everything.
