New Project Aims To Add Mobility and High-Tech To Antiques Appraisal

By Chris Janota

As a frequent garage saler i am often unclear of the value of some of the antique artifact i scan over. When you’re dealing with jewelry and other high-end baubles, the value depends quite a bit on hallmarks, mint marks, and quality notes. This project, called Info-Snap, aims to improve the process of assessing hallmarks in the wild, making anyone a junior antiques detective.

The system works  for smartphone owners – you simply take a picture of a hallmark and the system will look it up for you in its wiki style collectors database that catagorizes codes to identify new classes of antiques and collectables.

The concept is currently an incubator concept with IdeasProject and there’s no guarantee that it will ever see the light of day but it definitely would bring a bit of control back to the antiques business. Garage salers currently depend on ebay look ups and at best the word of a number of experts who, when they’re good, are prohibitively expensive to hire and when they’re bad will cost you too little or too much when they misvalue your items. Info-Snap lets everyone be a little bit smarter about the detritus of years past.

  2. They made use of the exact same innovative science to create Adiphene as they did Phen375,
    and this wound up developing a fantastically safe,
    unbelievably effective dietary fat burning
    supplement that other business envy. This alone offers
    it some credit score as a authentic contender within the
    eating regimen complement arena; at the moment oversaturated with
    poor high quality diet products. For your self-guidance, are able to go through top
    quality weight loss product reviews and are allowed to know upon the most-sought after available
    inside the market from the reputed pharmaceutical brands.
