Antique gun appraisals?

Alright,
So I'm acquiring some antique firearms that just may be valuable. Anyway, does anyone know of any good appraisers in the S. MD/ NoVA area knowledgable in antique (flintlock) firearms? I don't want to go to some gunshop where the guy just whips out a blue book.

Thanks

send your email address- a team mates brother-in-law buys/sells old firearms gave me a fair market estimate on an 1859 carbine.
