WTK-Any Military Art Print Collectors in the house?

My wife and I are planning a change of life and have decided to move to North Carolina. I'm unsure if I will have the space I had here in Virginia, so I might have to sell my all my Military Prints.

I dont want to turn them over the Valor Studios for re-sale and every other Military Art dealer doesn't have any relavent information.

Any I idea where I could find a valuation for the following?

TIA.

Very cool! I would love a crack at these prints when you get prices figured out. I have a couple with signatures from the Tokyo Raiders, these would compliment nicely.

Thanks for the links, I looked at the Victory Art Gallery early yesterday and just didn't have the patience to scroll all the way down.

Chesterfield Armament may be able to help...they used to do a lot of military art sales.

Wow, might have to hold on to these as I just heard from Aces High regarding their Silencing the Guns, $5,995.00

I never would have expected that amount.

These have no where to go but up in price. I also suspect you might regret letting these go.

Keep them!

Some of us care, but we do seem to be pretty few. I have way more old hunched fellas looking at my Garands at gun shows than guys my age. I'm pretty sure I have been the youngest vendor at all the shows Ive done for the last 10-12 years.
