Stephen’s knowledge of the cultural importance of music memorabilia
is unparalleled, and there are few I would trust more in the assessment
of the monetary value of any music-related item.

Much of this expertise is drawn from his own extensive collection
of paper and vinyl, which is one of the most eye-opening in the
United States. Therefore there is a lifetime of accumulated working
knowledge in any appraisal one might have him conduct.

Mr. Braitman collaborated very effectively with me to review and appraise the letters and other memorabilia of my late father, the great violinist and conductor Henri Temianka .  He took a genuine interest in the material and provided all necessary documentation in a timely and professional manner.  It was a pleasure to work with him.

Stephen was a pleasure to work with. He gave an accurate estimate
of both the  cost of his appraisal and the time he would take to complete
the job. He is professional, prompt, thorough and competitive regarding
his pricing and his turnaround times. I highly recommend him.

It is a pleasure to contract with a specialized consultant who is as
knowledgeable and qualified as Stephen Braitman. Furthermore, he is
practical in suggesting what needs to be appraised and options on the
best means by those objects might be appraised.

Stephen M.H. Braitman is the man to go to for certified appraisals
and evaluations for your old records and music memorabilia. Not only
did he tell me what my records were worth, he gave me a great deal of
information about them so I knew why they were worth that amount.
Extremely resourceful and knowledgeable with a modest turn-around
timeframe, there is no one else you should have to go to.
