Customer Question
I have a Curta...

I have a Curta Type II Calculator number 553600 Is it worth any money?

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.

My husband bought it for $1.00 I don't know where he bought. I love the item. I don't have the Manuel for it. It is in it's metal case and that is in a leather case with strap

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

It appears to be in very good condition.

This is a 1969 Curta Type II Calculator based on that serial number and has a value of

$1300 to $1500 resale.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local), Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com, eBay 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.
Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get five-star feedback for answers.
