Hi Deborah.

As a museum, we don't appraise objects (see our post on this for more info: http://nationalheritagemuseum.typepad.com/library_and_archives/appraisals/), but we do collect material about various fraternal organizations, including the Supreme Tribe of Ben Hur. If you're interested in having us consider your great uncle's certificate as a donation, take a look at this page on our museum's website: http://www.nationalheritagemuseum.org/Collections/DonationProcedures.aspx.

Thanks for reading - and commenting!
