I have a older tubeframe reel mower, it's gold in color. It's missing the side chain cover. It has some minor surface rust, but everything spins freely. I know these are pretty rare, and I don't really have a smooth lawn to use it on, so I'm trying to sell it. I haven't gotten much interest advertising locally. Is $250 unreasonable? I've never seen one for sale before, so I'm kind of surprised... I've gotten a few calls from the other side of the country, but shipping seems like it'll be at least $150 or so, which nobody wants to deal with.

Value on something like that is hard to determine since it's so rare.

I guess it's all up to how much someone is willing to pay for it, and/or how much you are willing to let it go for.

I paid $200.00 for one that looks to be in really goodcondition. Personally, I thought that was a bit low and would have been willing to pay up to $300.00. But, that's what the seller wanted, so at the end of the deal, he was happy, and I was plum tickled to death. :D

Does yours look anything like this?

I'd like to be 3rd in line. I'm in NY not far from Danbury. I'll be out in Salem in a couple weeks, so I can pick it up then if it hasn't already been claimed. Thanks!
