Value of Murphy's Cedar Chest

I have a Murphy cedar chest number 18 with the original price tag hanging in the chest that says $34. I am just wondering what the value of the chest is since I have received it from my grandmother and she said she bought it a very long time ago.

Go to ebay or worthpoint.com. The fact that it has the price tag will probably increase the value.

It does not appear that very many Murphy cedar chests are available but there are so many other good brands available that this may/probably reduces the value of your chest.

It will not be easy to find your exact chest number for sale or sold recently but maybe just seeing what older models are listing for will help.

Here is a #20 now listed on eBay (1-12-2017):

Large items are difficult to sell so most are offered locally on sites such as Craigslist, For Sale, and also on eBay but listed as local pick up only. Try looking at some of your local auction sites or even call a local auction dealer and ask about the current market price.
