 Signed Letters
Hand-signed letters were a lot more popular in the past than they are today, so make sure to go through all your old documents for a letter from any important people. Letters from former leaders for engagement in various programs are excellent copies of documents that can go for a small fortune!
Leather-Bound Books
Most old books aren't worth a ton of cash, but if you run over a leather-bound variant, you may be in victory. If the book is the first edition, you're staring at even more money.
Sterling Silver
The melt worth for sterling silver is much higher right now, so if you have
old silverware that you're not unusually attached to, think of selling it. This also pertains to old jewelry, dishes, and more.
Old Watches
Pocket watches are of special importance and worth to specialists. If your old pocket watch is covered with a key, you're looking at an even bigger fortune.
Mid-Century Furniture
Most copy items aren't worth a whole lot, but high-quality figures from the 50s and 60s are popular right now and can market for quite a bit.
Vinyl Records
If your vinyl records are in good shape and their original sleeves, you're in luck.
Specialists are ready to pay an even bigger sum if the records are sealed.
Finally, it's essential to note that any decent appraiser will instruct you on the best way to sell your antiques, rather than try to purchase them off of you on point. It's also important to keep in mind that several of these antiques' worth depends on the exchange trade. Even if your relatives' old items aren't worth tons of cash, they still hold emotional value.
