Thinking of selling my 1929 Philco Highboy radio, just not sure what to price it at. Can you be of assistance?

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.

It is the January- 511 series chassis. It is in excellent condition, also has original key.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Not that I can think of.

My name is ***** ***** I'd love to help.
Use the +Add Files feature next to the SEND button to upload photos of the item, including maker's marks.
The feature works best when you add ONE picture, put a word in the text box, hit send, then do the next.

I'm feeling that I won't be getting an answer, right? how does one cancel?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Sorry for wasting your time.

I need to see pictures of your exact radio. Adding photos does not cost extra.

I can answer after I see pictures and have time to write an answer.

A 1929 Philco highboy radio in the 511 chassis has a value of $325 to $350 on the secondary market

if it is in good condition.

Some sites that I recommend for selling on your own are www.loveseat.com (in CA),
Pamono.com, Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local), http://www.revueconsignment.com/ (in Ohio),
Chairish.com, Ioffer.com, and letgo.com (local).
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
They do all of the work and you get a check 14 to 45 days after the sale minus their 15% to 25% (negotiable!) commission.
