Value of Vintage Mower?

A vintager lawn mower.Huffy Mower. Model no. 52-16. I think it has a great overall look to it with its bold colors and lettering. I was curious if its actually worth any value? Is it something I should hold on to? Or has the day come to set it out for the trash? Thank you!

If no one here knows, perhaps you could post the question to the forum at the Old Lawnmower Club here: oldlawnmowerclub.co.uk/forum

You do not say what condition your mower is in;
is it running?
it looks pretty dirty and run down in the pictures.
Some mowers do sell but mowers are only sold in the area where they are located as they cannot be shipped so, think about your area - perhaps 10-20 miles around you - and decide if you think some of your neighbors would be interested in paying you money for this mower.

The pictures make it look like the kind we find by the curb in my area but pictures do not always tell the full story and items can be cleaned up.
If you think it might sell, then take good pictures (better than the ones posted here) showing the full mower, state running condition and list it for sale on Craigslist, Facebook marketplace, and see if you get any offers.
Start your price at $150 and lower it if you do not receive any offers.

This is a vintage Huffy electric mower. I think it is from the 1950s.

I found several Huffy electric mowers:

It looks like you have an early electric mower.
Someone tried to sell a vintage Huffy mower at $20

The price depends on the demand in your area as shipping is very expensive.

I think this lawnmower looks like your mower:

"Huffy grew out of the Huffman Manufacturing Company, which was founded in 1924.
The decision to produce lawnmowers was announced in December 1949."

Does your mower have the handle cord extender?

If not, then most likely your mower was made in the period 1949-1952.
There is a link to an ad for that mower in April 1953 Popular Mechanics
