    Hi.

    This seemed like the only appropriate thread to ask this question. I have been given an old set of Harrington brass Sovereign scales. They seem to work fine and correspond with a coin that was electronically weighed. I want to hang onto them as they fit in with my collection but my question is this - What are they worth? Any ideas. I tried old sales on ebay but the price fluctuates.

    Look forward to any input. Thanks.

    A "general discussion" thread might have been a good place to pop this, too.

    Please PM me if you decide to sell.

    If it's a fair price I'm in for sure.

    Fiat or trade for silver, whichever you prefer.

    Hi Swoydaz,

    You are first on the list should I sell. No problems. The price on ebay is between $150 - $250. What are your thoughts??

    Cheers

    oh, I better pass.

    Saw some generic brass scales quite a bit lower :(

    Apols.

    Hope you're having a great day and continue to do so.

    Cheers

    Hi mate. No apologies needed. If I decide to flog them, we can have a chat. I got them for nothing so they owe me nothing and if I get sick of them I would be happy for them to go to someone who would appreciate the antique value. Keep in touch. Cheers.

    Depends which one it is.. about $100 is a sellers price but there are around 100 different patients and some are superior to others .. the other variable is age.. the earliest ones are in a lot of ways more scarce and more highly demanded..

    Your question is basically like. i have a sovereign.. what is it worth... i saw one on ebay for $600

    Yes. You are right. If it pleases the eye then that gives it it's own intrinsic value. Question answered so thank you all. Cheers.

    Are you sure it's not Harrison Sovereign Scales?

    Yes, sorry. They are Harrison scales. I am nearly as old as the scales hence the confusion. Cheers.
