I have a Seth Belmont No. 4 Mantle clock with original label

Customer Question

I have a Seth Thomas Belmont No. 4 Mantle clock with original label from 1913 purchased at Krenek's Clock Haven in Rockford, IL on 07-26-1919. The clock is currently not working. I would like to sell it, but I'm not sure what it is worth in non-working, but excellent condition with very little wear and no scratches.

A 1913 Seth Thomas Belmont no 44 clock has a value of $250.00 in working condition.

Usually, they just need a cleaning because dust gets mixed with the oils in the movement and the works get gummed up. A cleaning would cost about $45.00. Of course, there could be a broken mainspring, which would be more expensive.

In non-working condition, it would have a value of $100.00.
