Sometimes these mowers can be dated by a model number so you should look all over the mower for any numbers, sometimes they are on the wheels.
I have a Great American reel mower that we inherited from my wife's grandmother. The only number I can find on it 1143-68 and under that is 5416. I am curious to know the time period when it was manufactured and its value.
You will need to do some research to find a value. Search online for possible buyers and collectors and check EBay and Craig's List for prices of similar mowers.
I have the same one. Mine says 2-25-53 for the date on the inside right wheel.
Neat mower!! I love the look of the old pushers!
There is a mower on eBay now that looks similar. If you feel it is an EXACT match, you may want to watch it and see what/if it sells and for how much.
There are not any SOLD listings that I can find in the recent past that are matches to yours. Finding SOLD items that are EXACT matches for style, model, condition etc. is THE ONLY way to determine true value (which is what someone will actually PAY for an item).
Selling mowers online is a huge challenge (hard to pack, high shipping costs, danger of getting smushed) unless you do have someone pick it up and then that limits your audience.
Hope this can get you started putting a value to it.
Another suggestion would be to visit the Old Lawn Mower Club. They have articles and a classified ad section. www.oldlawnmowerclub.co.uk/
