COLUMBUS, Ohio – April 26, 2005 – Antique buyers, sellers and appraisers now have an online tool to help them accurately price and value items based on consolidated historical data and current asking price.

Called PriceMiner™, (http://www.PriceMiner.com)the Internet tool from GoAntiques.com™ is a powerful aggregator of pricing information from a variety of internationally recognized sources. By simply keying in attributes of the item you wish to buy, sell or value, PriceMiner performs a search through millions of prices and presents historical pricing information for the same or similar items. In addition, the service analyzes the data for you so you don’t have to sort through massive amounts of numbers.

"PriceMiner is the first product to combine historical data from multiple external sources with GoAntiques.com’s vast archive of merchandise sales information, perform analysis and then present findings on price averages and ranges," said Jim Kamnikar, GoAntiques.com president and chief executive officer. "Antiques professionals as well as consumers will find PriceMiner to be an unparalleled pricing knowledge tool for accurately assessing the value of antique and collectible merchandise to buy or sell."

In addition to GoAntiques.com’s historical price information, PriceMiner includes listing results from the vast eBay® historical database and online storefront sales provided by TIAS.com.

Search and sort criteria include price range, category, sale date, data source and currency, with the later being conveniently converted to dollars.

Other PriceMiner features include:

* The ability to use photos to closely match the item you are pricing.
* The option of saving individual searches for later reference.
* Links to merchandise for sale that match the search criteria.
* No-cost use for GoAntiques.com member dealers.
* Convenient subscription program for non-GoAntiques.com members.

PriceMiner subscriptions start at $9.95 a month or can be structured at $99 annually, both for unlimited use. In addition, an affiliate referral program is available that includes providing PriceMiner directly from e-commerce Web sites.

PriceMiner will be demonstrated at the eBay Live! conference and trade show, June 23-25 at the McEnery Conference Center in San Jose, Calif., in the GoAntiques.com booth #532, next to eBay Collectibles.
