I found two eBay sales of 1960s Flexible Flyers that sold on eBay.
These are the results:
On 12.5.13 $75
On 12.3.11 $51
Both were shown to be in very good condition.
The auction value of your sled would be $51-75 assuming very good condition.
The retail value of certain items is more than the auction value.
Your sled would have a retail value of $90-120.
A private seller to a dealer can expect 40-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.
