Welcome to Just Answer! I wanted to let you know that someone has seen your question. We thank you for your patience.
I will opt-out so that when the other Appraisals specialists go online, they will see your questions.
Before I opted out, I did a quick search for your box.
Does your box look like the Turret box in this picture?
Also, what is the condition of your box?
The three boxes in the image I sent sold at auction for $25.
See the following image of a Turret box like yours that is for sale now for a retail asking price of $15.
It is in worse condition than yours. This means yours should have a retail asking price of $28-35 assuming excellent condition and depending on sale geographic location.
Online auctions like eBay generally bring wholesale selling prices.
If you would like to sell close to estimated retail, some ideas are:
The internet has your largest audience of buyers. Place small ads on these sites or set up your own small store on these sites.
Be sure to specify local pick up only for large items. That way the buyer would be responsible for obtaining his own insurance and transport.
These sites carry antique as well as vintage items.Accept PayPal only.
Etsy.com - small fees - 20 cents to list plus 3.5% final price.Artfire.comBonanza.com
These sites are excellent and more upscale but fees are higher. I only recommend them if you have several items to sell.GoAntiques.comRubylane.comTias.comcyberattic.comtrocadero.com
Or your nearest CraigsList.com where you can list items for free. Accept cash only.
In general, a private seller to a dealer, via consignment or at auction can expect 30-50% of estimated retail value.
Insurance replacement values are usually about 20% more than retail values.
I hope I have helped you.
