PQ stands for 'Pennsylvania Quality' and there is not very much to be found on this brand reel mower or edger.
I did find some vintage similar mower/edgers for sale but sold ones were mostly on Worthpoint site and they do not tell the sold price unless you are a member but as a general rule most of their sold items like this were sold several years.
Similar item:
www.ebay.com/.../333712330842

This listing is currently on Etsy but I have a feeling the price may be a little high.

I found this PQ item that sold last month on Etsy but they never reveal their sold price.

Vintage mowers do not seem to be selling right now but if you decide to list yours you would need to clean it up and make sure it is working properly.
You could list it on sites like Craigslist, USA4Sale, Facebook Marketplace, offerup, letgo, Ioffer, and start your price higher - maybe $150 with best offer considered, and even free local pick up, and wait a few months but if no offers then lower the price and wait again.

This is a good site to join and ask your questions, especially if you need help with getting it ready to sell.

I'm looking for an older reel mower to restore for a project. I found this one but can not find any information on manufacturer or age. I was told that it was a Crown but see nothing on it to verify this. I would like to know the original manufacturer and approximate age, also paint colors to restore it to original. An old reel mower.

 

Found something similar on the Old Lawn Mower Club about a "Five Star Ball Bearing" possible manufacturer Hibbard, Spencer & Bartlett says the original color was green and yellow. Hoping someone can help with more specific information.

Vintage lawn mowers are sometimes difficult to identify unless you are into refurbishing different brands.
Since information is what you are looking for, I would suggest you join some of the vintage forums and ask your questions there as these members seem to love a 'mystery' and will probably be able to help you.

Your pictures are very good and the star on the wheels will most likely be a big factor in identifying your mower.
here are some links but there are other forums online:

I use an old reel mower for my yard, but acquired this older one that doesn't work. A friend said it might be worth something to someone. It says Townsend's on the handle and Townsend Flyer SP Townsend & Co on the wheels.

The wheels are all metal as are the mechanics. The handle is wood as is the neck from the reels to the handle. Any ideas?

Truth be told, people buy these types of mowers as long as they work.

In the condition it is in now you will be lucky to receive $15 for the mower.

If you list this online you will have to ask a large shipping price to send this to the person who buys it.

Your best bet is to try and fix this mower and get it working again and see if you can sell it on Criag's list in your area only.

If this is your cool machine, in 2009 they were selling for $50 (see the link for the one this person bought):

www.mytractorforum.com/.../142714-$50-cl-find.html

The market has tanked for all collectibles since 2008, so I am guessing that the value is still the same (or maybe a little less) today.

This is a true supply/demand piece so if you are in a place where there are few and a high demand, it will increase the value. A bunch and no demand, drops the value.

Post back with an update! Best wishes!
