This is a very difficult question to answer.

 

These units do not really increase in value as far as antique value. The are worth whatever a buyer is willing to pay.

 

In most cases these are more valuable to the original owner than they are to sell to someone else. They are usually passed down to a relative. Values on these can range from about $100 to over $400 depending on what extra attachments you have with it and if it is in good condition as far as the ORIGINAL PAINT.

 

DO NOT PAINT THIS UNIT !!! You will devalue it considerably. Any collector wants it with the original paint, or at least they want to do the restoration themselves.

 

I hope this helps.
