VALUATIONS – SITE POLICY
The purpose of this site is to act as a resource for collectors & users of vintage camp stoves.
As a strict policy we do not give valuations, the best way to assess the value is by offering it for sale by conventional channels or through an online auction site.
Forum posts which request valuations will have this policy posted in reply by the forum moderator, and it will then be locked.
This policy has had to be adopted because the value of an item is determined not only by age, condition and perceived rarity, but also by how many purchasers may be interested in it at that specific time.
Time spent in reviewing the sort of prices which similar items reach in an online auction site, may give you a guide to it’s value. It is then your decision as to whether you sell it, and the method you choose, noting that it is always possible to seek a buyer via the For Sale section of the Trading Post on this site (Subscription Required).
Thank you for your co-operation.
