Just looking to see...

Just looking to see if this old Koken barber chair I've acquired is worth anything and what the age is on it. I'm thinking 70's

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Too bad I can't upload a pic. There is a barcode on it

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Just looked I don't think it's a Koken bar code lol
