i purchased from the original owner's family an MF-12 (Garaged & in Excellent Original Condition) along with some MF accessories........Mowing Deck, Dump Trailer, Snow Plow, Wheel Weights & Tire Chains 
I'm not sure what year it is, but i think it's somewhere between 1967 to 1969, i also have with it all the original "MF-12 Operator's Manual, MF-610 Rotary Mower Operator's Manual, Assembly Instructions for both MF-12 & MF-610, as well as the dealership brochures for the MF Line) 
just wondering how to find out what year it is and what my MF-12 & Accessories are worth ?
thanks

I'd say price would depend on the demand an interest in your area, never the less that is quite a find. I'd love to have a Massey lawn cart in that condition. Well actually I'd like to find the whole package you have. I think somewhere there's a post with the serial number years.

It is worth exactly what you paid for it.  Not a penny more nor a penny less. When you sell it, it will be worth exactly what the buyer pays you.  Not a penny more nor a penny less.   That is the essence of the free market economy & the very definition of "fair market value".

I know you want a package number, but I can't do that. Mainly because packages are so much harder to sell that there isn't a huge sampling to draw from
I also refuse to give out inflated and unrealistic ebay numbers. Just because someone lists it at a million, doesn't mean there is a buyer. Or two, if your selling.
Price varies a LOT by location. I can only reflect on what I've bought and what I've seen them sell for elsewhere.

All that having been said. (Remember, these are my opinion ONLY)

Mf12, running in great original condition 300-400
Dozer blade 150
OEM 2 pc wheel weights, 100-300 pr
Deck, 100ish
Trailer in that condition 150-250

Hope my guesses help.

Take it to a show and put a " make an offer" sign on it and see what happens.

Welcome to GTT. The prices are very subjective and also vary by area of the country. You have a very nice looking tractor and should enjoy it. That machine is much better built than the new crap. Do all maintenance on it before you use it. You never know what is in the fluids. Good Luck, Rick

thanks guys for all the info......i'm on the fence with keeping it as it takes up a lot of garage space with all the accessory bits, and i'm thinking that i would like to get a much needed log splitter in it's place in my garage
