Underwood Portable Typewriter

Submitted by: John 

Appraised by: Allen

Some antique typewriters can be extremely valuable. A rare Shales typewriter from the 1890s recently went for $9000 at auction! Ernest Hemingway was one of Underwood's most famous owners. Underwood typewriters were produced in great quantities so many of these sturdy machines have survived to this day in good condition. Unfortunately, more supply generally means less demand for typewriters like yours. If your typewriter still types perfectly, the value will be higher. Thanks to expensive shipping costs, I have seen lesser Underwoods sell online for just $50, but judging from the pictures of your beautiful Mahogany grained finish, I would ask at least $150 for yours and it would be worth $200 if it had it's original carrying case.

WW2 Bolt Action Rifle

Submitted by: Kevin 

Appraised by: Ton

World War II .308 caliber guns like this typically sell for $150, but can go all they way up to a grand or two for the most rare. It looks like it is a definitely well taken care of firearm. It's really a cool gun, and if the gun does fire, it could easily grab $200.

Old Cast Iron Bell w/Yoke

Submitted By: Donna & Brian 

Appraised by: Allen

This great old bell has Ton and I drooling like Pavlov's dog.  Your husband has a wonderful eye so you many want to encourage him to try his hand at Auction Hunting! When I think Belknap, I think cast iron skillets, wood planes and knives but they also made terrific school bells like this good old number 2 you have here.  Smaller sizes were also used for dinner bells on farms across this great country. Here's a tip, don't ring it around Ton unless there is plenty of food on hand. Also don't let the 1840 date on that bell fool you, that's the date that Belknap Hardware and Manufacturing Company started manufacturing iron works on the banks of the Ohio River. I can date your bell closer to the turn of the century thanks to the mounting hardware and knowing a little bit of history about the company's product line. Naturally bells are much more valuable if they have no cracks and still ring. Given the weight, I would encourage you to sell the bell locally so you can avoid shipping this heavy monster. What I would ask for the old girl? Seven hundred smackeroos. Drooling yet?
