1. This forum section is the place for the “none of the above” topics (postings) – not technical, maybe campanalogical but not carillon-related. Comments about sleigh bells or Russian Zvon ringing would fit there. If a topic is started here that seems to fit more in the “News” category (prominent carillonneur dies, for instance) or one of the other categories, the moderator may move it to that forum section. This is a good place to put things like mentioning some old movie that had a carillon in it, for example – not news, and not one of the other categories.

Professional Appraisal - Carillon architectural model

Dear Colleagues,

A donor wishes to donate the original architectural model of the Thomas Rees Memorial Carillon to the Rees Carillon Society. He purchased it some 40 years ago from the architect. While we were able to have an architect provide a replacement value (since models have that time period were hand built), we are having great difficulty finding an appraiser to verify its value for purposes of a federal income tax charitable deduction. We are confident it is worth more than $5,000 and could be worth as much as $12,000. Hence the need for a qualified professional appraisal.

Is anyone among our membership a professional appraiser and qualified to provide appraisals for carillon related items like this? Thanks, Robin Austin

Wow! That one is totally out of my area. I suspect Pat Macoska is the best person to contact for a lead on this. Interesting!
