I believe this is from 1956 not 1935. The number read backward ends in 56. This is an unusual model. I think 100 is a little low. It is supply and demand based so maybe that will be perfect for your market.

If it was mine, I would start at 250 and take best offer. Post back how your sale goes!

Because this is 7 MN umber, the 6 would have been the number of th plant manufactured in. At least that is what gleaned from my reading. That's why it looks more art deco than mid century

i agree with PGHgirl that $100 may be too low unless you know this is a good price for your area.
Usually it is best to start higher and discuss offers - especially on Facebook Marketplace because the potential buyers will be dealing straight with you - no 'middle' man.

Your Lane Cedar Chest has the number 653190. To determine the production date read the serial number backwards:
read backwards the last two digits 90 - this is the month 09 (September),
then two digits 31 - this is day 13,
then read backwards the two digits 65 - will be 56, this is year 1956.
Date of manufacture September 13th, 1956.
I found looking exactly the same lane cedar dated 1956 instappraisal.com/.../1950s-lane-cedar-chest Therefore Pghgirl40 is right and there is no doubt that your lane chest was made in 1956.
