On the Appraisal Side: ISA’s Lamp of Knowledge Award

The International Society of Appraisers (ISA) recently presented Patricia Thompson of Tupelo, Miss., with the 2004 Lamp of Knowledge Award. This annual award honors a singular outstanding education work product pertaining to the appraisal profession as a whole or in a specialty area. This year's award was given for Thompson's article, "Wrestling With Watch Appraisals," which appeared in the June 2003 (Vol. 10, No. 1) issue of Auction Market Resource (AMR). The article guides appraisers through the minefield of appraising "those ticky-tocky things," says Gail Levine, publisher of AMR. It features an Appraisal Take-In Form for Watches, as well as three pages of hallmarks and trademarks, and answers that age-old question: "Do I have to open the case to appraise the watch?" Thompson is a Certified Appraiser of Personal Property (CAPP) in the ISA and a Certified Gemologist Appraiser (CGA)
