Full Answer

Collectibles Database allows its users to submit information about different collectible figurines, such as those from Precious Moments, and receive an official price appraisal based on the current fair market value of the item. Users need to create an account with the site in order to submit an appraisal request, which allows the site to manage any accompanying photos and track the responses from its team. Instapraisal.com offers a similar service and also performs appraisals on other types of collectible items.

Appraisals done either online or in person are not always accurate. An appraisal is an estimation of how much an item might be worth at an auction or if sold in a store. To gain a more accurate look at the current market value of Precious Moments figurines, look at auction sites such as eBay.com to find out what prices are currently associated with different figurines and how much people are actually willing to pay for them.
