Customer Question

What would an age unknown (but old, sitting in a barn for 50 yrs.), hand crank, flywheel momentum assist, dual throated corn ear sheller be worth? I cannot find manufacturer information, but I looked quickly and it wasn' t completely uncovered. I separates the corn kernels from the cob with a back and forth shaker through heavy gauge wire.

Hi,

Your corn sheller dates to the end of the 19th century, or late 1800's.

On today's market, these sell for $150 - $200 on average at auction.
