Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Will no longer works on this site. I hope you do not mind my taking your question.

I researched your question before I decided to answer.

I found several M Walter Dunn copies of the Magna Carta that had sold at auction for $45-65. They were the same age as yours 1900-1910.

Auction values are usually about half what a dealer would charge.

This means your copy of the Magna Carta would have a retail antiques store value of about $110-130.

I wish it could be more but the recent sales do not justify a higher value.

A private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of retail value.

I hope I have helped you.

If I can help you with further questions about this answer, please let me know before you rate me.

All my answers are quoted in USA dollars.

Retail values are the same as insurance values.
