We have a Rowe MM3 Music Miracle jukebox that holds 100 45s. The exterior is in very good condition, but I don't believe it is currently working as it has been in storage for the last 20 years.
A jukebox that is not working may not command a very high price as usually only a dealer/repair person will be interested. Occasionally an individual will buy one thinking they will restore it.
I need a roundabout value if anyone has a clue and is willing to help.
You don't mention if it works.
If it doesn't, I recently learned that if you know how to take it apart (and even better...if you can test the individual parts) you can sometimes double or triple the "retail" value of the item versus if you were to sell it as a whole.
It sounds counter-intuitive, but there are a lot of people out there who like to repair the pieces already have or buy on the cheap and they want original parts.
Here are a couple of samples of sold parts for various Rockolas (not necessarily your model...but just to give you an idea of the concept).
Hope you find this helpful!
I have a 1940 series d Rock-Ola. I got it at an estate sale. I'm having a hard time finding this model or others like it. The coin mechanism was pulled out of it. Other than that everything works fine. I am looking for an estimated value and recommendations for a repair shop in Dallas, Texas.
This may be another "heyday" for jukeboxes as they seem to be very popular right now.
Here are some photos of similar boxes:
I am trying to determine the value of a 1958 Seeberg 201 Selectomatic. It is in beautiful condition. I believe it needs calibration.
Generally, units in almost perfect condition command the highest prices but where (physically) the jukebox is located determines the price and how or when sold.
How much is a Seeburg Select-o-matic jukebox, Q160MH serial # 112252 in good working order worth? It was serviced about 6 years ago and works great. I just played it a couple of days ago.
These are worth at least $1500, and some are considerably more. Look on eBay for a couple of months to see the range.
I have a STD-3 Sunstar 1976 by Seeburg jukebox. I can't find the value of it on the internet. Can you tell me what it is worth? It has got minor scratches on it and the paint is chipped off on the back. Does this lower the value? Is it rare?
One in good working condition is worth $550. I would expect $50-75 less for the cosmetic flaws
I have Seeburg LS1 jukebox. The serial number is 081267. It is in good, original, working condition. What is it worth? Thank you.
I looked online and saw one similar to yours on sale for $500.
My mother has a Wurlitzer 1952 Seeburg Selectomatic jukebox. It's in poor shape, but was working in the last 10 years. How much can she sell something like this for today?
Juke Box worth.
It is worth about 2500 to 3000 but it has to be in good working shape.
They want things in mint condition in order to be able to sell them.
I have a NSM hideaway E jukebox in great working order with speakers and wooden consulette. Any idea on how much it is worth?
Juke box worth.
Between 300 to 500 dollars.
Yours is in good condition so it will sell better.
Be sure what yours is worth study E-Bay for a month.
Look at actual sells and not just listed prices.
I'm purchasing a 1972 Rowe model MM6 Bourbon Street jukebox this weekend. It works great- loads, plays, and lights up. I'm just curious what the average price usually runs for one of these in great condition. Thank you!
I saw one on eBay for $700.
Value/prices for any brand of jukebox seems to go up or down every few years. The market seems to be in the higher scale right now.
I hope you purchased your machine at a good price. Now you can become a "fanatic" and scour the Internet for for any tidbit you can find.
Be sure to check out Rowe and AMI history.
Thank you! I am sooo happy with my jukebox, it works great and sounds awesome. I bought from an elderly lady for $250 and it was full of oldies music + she threw in another box full of 45s! I lucked out.
Thank you so much!!! Ive been googling like crazy. Im in love with this jukebox. Ive been wanting one for years, but never been able to find one I could afford. I have TONS of records, so I needed one that used 45s. An elderly lady was selling it for $250, still full of records and threw in another box of records. I ordered new labels off EBay and threw in some of my own records and Ive been playing music daily since I bought it.
The jukebox is a Seeburg Vogue STD160 purchased in 1989. The outside is in fairly good shape, the chrome has some spots and chips on it, the glass is intact, it just needs some cleaning. All the lighting works. The record selector functions as it should. I can hear the record playing, but the speakers don't seem to work. Also, I am unable to find the key. I need to know a reasonable asking price for this jukebox.
I have 2 480/Rockola jukeboxes full of 45s. If I can't find a repairman in Cleveland Ohio where could I post for sale? I have had no luck.
I am trying to determine the sale value of my Rowe AMI model R87 200 selection jukebox. It is in very good condition.
I am looking to buy a Rockola 445 jukebox in good condition. Can you tell me how much they sell for please?
The person selling here is asking $600. jacksonboro.americanlisted.com/
I am trying to assess value of a Seeburg Select O Matic 200 High Fidelity jukebox. Serial # 6147; Model 201DH.
You do not give any information concerning condition (working? - restored?) so that information will greatly determine the value of any jukebox. I have not been able to find any recent sales of this model. You can Google "where to sell Seeburg jukebox" and there will be sites that you can list yours or you might find one similar to determine a current value.
There are a few Seeburgs listed on eBay at any given time and occasionally one sells. Here are some listings but I only found one similar to yours. (8/2017)
Here is a similar model - same year I believe. Asking price $9,200.
Here is one that sold in 2002 for $3,700.
This link is just for information on Seeburg jukeboxes.
How much is a 1983 Wurlitzer model 40304 juke box worth? It is in fair condition. Thank you.
Only someone who deals in jukeboxes can really give you a true value as the market varies for each make, year, model (I do not think you have your model number correct), and most important - condition. What you rate as fair may not be rated as such by an appraiser. You could keep a watch on eBay for this year machine but there may not be one listed for 2 or 3 years and may never be sold - even if listed. You may find similar machines but they may not relate to your machine in any way - especially in price/value.
Older machines (in good condition) usually sell for more money. Shipping is always a problem and it is very expensive. Many times people will list on Craigslist as the machine can be seen and picked up so there is no shipping involved.
Here is a web site of a company that overhauls jukeboxes before selling so you can take a look at the prices he sells for (may not find one like yours).
Here is link to a company that buys and appraises jukeboxes so you might want to contact them to see what they will tell you about your box (free information as far as I know).
I have a Rockola that has been stored in my basement for several years, and I have decided it is time to sell it. I would like to have some idea of what it is worth. It is very good condition, but the coin mechanism needs to be cleaned up. The coin does not drop all the way through. What is the price range for a Rockola Princess Console model #461, era 1975?
It is also loaded with 45 RPM records. Maybe I should sell the records separately.
I appreciate your help.
According to this website: http://lists.ne ober/040691.html this is a later model and not worth as much as previous models.
It's worth between $300-$400.
These are nice machines but the resale value is much less than a few years ago. Collectibles like this run in cycles of demand and supply so you are lucky if you wish to sell when the market is on the upswing. Of course the biggest problem is the size (and almost fragile) because it would be very expensive to ship. This means you would generally have to find someone within a certain mile radius that really wanted one of these and would be able to pick it up from your location.
This actually means you may be able to sell it if you advertise on Craig's List or any of your areas auction sites. Just Google your zip code and auction or for sale sites and you should find several listed.
This is a very slow selling item and since yours is a later model it would probably not sell for much more than it cost years ago.
Here is a web site that I am not familiar with but it may be okay to use and they may tell you what your machine is really worth (as we could be wrong about the value):
