Hi,

This is Wayne I am a verified expert in Antiques and Collectibles an can help you with this. Improved Lippincott Planimeter​s are selling at auction and on sites such as Ebay for $150-200 and Retail value is $300. These American Planimeters are much more collectible than similar ones made in Germany selling for $40.

Thank you,
