I list things for...

I list things for sale for my friends. One has an old Montgomery Ward 91-66-40B enameled cast iron wood burning cookstove that I want to list. Trying to get a starting price. Is there a way I can send you a photo?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I have all the original paperwork for the stove and nearly all the parts.

Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment. If you cannot send photos, I can still work with your descriptions; however, I can give more accurate answers if I have photos.
Can you send photos?

If so, then -

Please send photos of the stove.

Please send a photo of the marks and/or words on the stove.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the labels.

If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "ADD FILES" in the blue box link (next to "SEND" or "SUBMIT") on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.

An explanation of this method can be found here:

http://ww2.justanswer.com/help/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert-hl

I do not send pop-up offers.

Please do not try to use the site email method of sending photos without specific instructions from me.

Kind regards,
Doris

A similar wood burning stove by Montgomery Ward sold a few months ago on eBay for $500.

A starting price for an online auction listing probably should be $350.

If you wish to go the "Buy It Now" format, set the price at $650 and use "Best Offer" feature.

I hope I have helped you.
