Thanks for the inquiry! There's a wonderful market for these great, antique cash registers!Typically, turn of the century National Cash Register cash registers in good, but not exceptional condition that need restoration sell at auction at the $250 to $350 level (and sometimes more). I'd recommend reaching out to Showtime Auctions in Michigan (http://showtimeauctions.com/) as they have a robust market for these and frequent sales. These types of cash registers sell at smaller auctions around the country frequently. After checking with them, another option is Etsy (but keep in mind that shipping these to a retail consumer may be challenging.)Should this prove helpful, kindly rate my service positively so I'm credited for answering the question. If not, let me know how I can provide more help. I understand that sometimes an item may be worth more or less than you expected; if you'd like further explanation of the market for a given item, please let me know and again, thank you!
