P    lease read the following items:

•    Although we strive to provide a safe environment for the Treasured
     Heirloom Event, it is the owner’s responsibility to protect their
     items during the event. The Historical Society of Frederick County,
     its staff, volunteers, or the experts are not responsible for lost,
     damaged, or stolen items.

•    Owners are responsible for handling and transporting their own
     items at all times.

•    Our experts are able to provide a verbal estimation of value only,
     not an appraisal. An appraisal requires market value research and
