Thank you. While the equipment was patented in 1916, your particular example came onto the market in the summer of 1922.

Unfortunately, these larger collectibles are a hard sell these days--few collectors have the space to display them. The resale value would be in the range of $300.00 - $400.00.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
