Value of Mersman End Table 66-2?

I have a pair of end tables that were my grandfather's. I find a lot of info on Mersman coffee and specialty tables, but nothing on the ones that I have. Under the Mersman name is 66-2. The paper tag from the furniture store offers no addition info. Any idea of the age? Any idea of the value? I know the value will depend on condition, and they do have some minor scratches. Thank you for any help!

Mersman tables were made in the mid 20th century. They are less than $100 each. Yours are in great shape, so I would ask $75 each.

There seems to be very little known about actual dates/years most Mersman table were made and there does not seem to be a list anywhere that even antique dealers can rely on. Dealers usually try to go by the actual type of marks on the underside of the tables and that is the reason that most tables will just say "mid-century".

There were so many tables manufactured that most are not really very valuable and they are not fast movers on auction sites. Furniture is very costly (and difficult) to ship so many auctions will state "pick-up only" - no shipping.
You may want to try selling through your local sites (Craigslist, ??For sale) Google your zip and ask about selling items in your locale.
Mersman made table with all kinds of wood and finishes so that would also be a factor in their value.
Please remember - auction listings are just that - listings - and does not always have anything to do with what an item can be sold for. Here is an example of most dealers opinion of the value of these tables: Mersman tables today have little collector value due to their overwhelming availability.
