Value of Vintage Jacobson Mower

I was wondering how much this is worth. It's a vintage Jacobson Manor 30 with a Wisconsin motor. It has been stored indoors and all has and oil drained before storing. Great shape?

First: be sure to spell the name correctly; Jacobsen.
It is very difficult to place a value on vintage items like this as all items will be in varying condition and located in different areas of the US. The area is important because these mowers are very costly to ship and most sellers list them as 'local pick up only'. This means your area could be good or bad for selling an item like this. Your mower may be gasoline powered but it is still a 'reel mower' and will not cut grass higher than 2 inches. It will just roll over many weeds even with sharp blades (or that has been my experience with a similar mower). So - is your area into 'lawn' care so they can use this type mower? I would say your area would probably be about a 10-25 mile radius.

You may see similar mowers for sale but just small differences in mowers can mean a big difference in value.
Brand names are the biggest differences in value and Jacobsen is not a well known brand so you cannot just look at 'vintage mowers' to get a feel for a value of yours. However, you can look on some sites like Craigslist, OfferUp, letGo, USA4Sale to see if mowers like yours are listed for sale and if they are selling. This would provide some information about asking/selling prices in your area.
These are the same type of sites to list your mower for sale; you can start off with a high price with best offer considered and local pick up only - maybe start at $400 and if no offers after a few weeks then lower the price and wait again. Post on several sites. Be sure to have several very good pictures and all information listed, especially the cutting size (inches).
I'm sure you know that December is not the best time to be trying to sell a lawn mower.

It would be good to know the year your mower was made so you might go to some of the lawn mower forums and ask some question. I have listed links to a couple of sites - you will have to join the forum to post.
