TRUSTED & Impartial

We don’t buy or sell for our own account, so we are not on commission. This helps us give open and honest appraisals. 


Divorces can be sticky, but appraisals don’t have to be. Let us help you know the worth when distribution or liquidation of a collection is the goal.



We partner with Lawyers, Estates, Banks & Financial Planners to assist you when an equitable distribution of collectibles is desired. 


We have received the vaccine and follow strict CDC guidelines to provide a safe environment for all involved.

Client Testimonials

Dont’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say about Rare Coin & Stamp Appraisals:

“It was my pleasure to engage Richard Woodbury to sell a large estate coin collection. He sold the various grades of coins through different channels to achieve the absolute best price. Best of all, he made the process so easy. I would be happy to recommend Rick to anyone selling coins or bullion. I give him my highest recommendation.”

Mark E., Bellevue, WA

“Rick was kind and patient and explained things we didn’t understand with just the right amount of detail as he helped our family sort and value the boxes of coins and stamps our relatives left behind. His obvious integrity at each step of the process, combined with a very professional manner and obvious expertise, helped us build deep trust. We are extremely grateful we found Rick at this time. We highly recommend him!”

Tom, Portland, Oregon

“Rick Woodbury recently evaluated a large and complex stamp collection for our family. We could not be more satisfied with Rick’s extra effort on this project. He was thorough, dedicated, informative, and answered all of our questions. Rick went above and beyond to research some of the very rare stamps in the collection. We give Richard Woodbury our HIGHEST recommendation.”
