My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.
Please upload clear pictures of your weather vane.
Also, you mention that the condition is fair. What are its flaws?
I've received your drawings, but they are not usable. They are all sideways and much too large to be viewed. Photographs would be much more useful. I appreciate that you went to so much trouble to do these for me, but I really can't see them.
Please see our help page for help uploading images.
Go to http://www.imgur.com.
1. Click "Computer".2. Double click the image you want to upload.3. Click "Start Upload".4. When the image appears on your screen, just copy the link from that page and paste it on this page.
If that doesn't work for you:
You can email the pictures to***@******.***, and ask them to forward the pictures to me. You must tell them the pictures are for the Antiques category, and give them your user name and mine, which is Judith-on-Antiques. It is important for you to send the email from the address with which you registered at Just Answer. If you are sending them from a phone, you must put the original email address in the text.
Thanks for the excellent pictures.
That is an impressive lightning rod/weather vane.
The Cole Brothers Pump & Lightning Rod Co was a family company, founded in Mount Pleasant, Iowa in 1849. Their products were sold door to door . The company is especially well known for its swirl lightning rod balls.
IF your lightning rod/weathervane is in fair condition, its current retail(replacement or insurance) value is approximately $300.
I hope this answer has been helpful to you.
