1885 Bunker Hill Grammar School Diploma #

I have a framed 1885 Bunker Hill Grammar diploma. The frame is guilded from the same time period. Is there any collectible value to this holding?

Dear Paul,

Thank you for commenting and letting us know about your Bunker Hill Grammar School diploma from 1885. It sounds like an interesting piece demonstrating how much education was valued for it to have survived in its frame. Unfortunately, Historic New England is not allowed to give valuations of objects, but if you contact one of the many paper dealers in the New England area, they may be able to give some idea of value as a collectable.
