I have a Marblehead, The Light of the Northcoast, Centennial collector's plate 1891-1991 featuring the fine artistry of Ben Richmond. It is plate number 353, 8 1/2 in diameter, and is new in the box. Please see photos. Can anyone tell me what it is worth and where I might be able to sell it?
These are all over the place in what people ask for them. I have seen people ask from $20 to $100 for them new in the box. There is one exactly like yours that sold on Worthpoint, but I gave up my membership so I can't see the sold price they got for it, which would tell me the current market value, depending on when it sold.
Some of his other plates I have seen sell for on average $20-$25 dollars.
Because it is breakable, you are best to sell it in a local venue. Start high, take best offer. Do you have consignment stores that would sell it for you...that is probably the safest way...no one coming to your house, you get a percentage of sale.
If you are an experienced seller and comfortable with eBay and shipping breakables, you get the most exposure. I would set it up as a Good until cancelled at a high amount and take best offer.
Post back how your sale goes!
I have a, The Gathering, collectors plate by Northcoast Publishing. It is the second collectors plate issued of Northcoast Imagery by Ben Richmond. It is plate number 241, 8 1/2 in diameter, dated 1986 and is new in box.
Plates such as this do not hold a large value when resold. I am sure if you hold onto the plate for a longer period of time the plate will be worth more than it is right now. There are some selling online for around 10 to 15 dollars. Maybe in around 10 years the plates will be worth more and people will want to collect them again. A lot of collectables from the 80s are not popular today and there are people who are looking to sell them off.
