Kodak Brownie (1900 Type) with Palmer Cox box

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Brownies Buy and Sell : One Thread

I recently acquired a Brownie (1900 Type) in perfect condition with an original Palmer Cox Brownie box (missing one end flap). I would like to know what the actual value of such an item is (not what they are bringing on eBay). I would like other SERIOUS Brownie collectors to respond.

Since posting the original question in 1999, I have had 5 serious offers for the camera. The range has been from a low of $450.00 to a high of $795.00, the latter being offered in June of 2003. The camera still sits in my display case at home. Like a fine wine, it will only increase in value.

I have never bought a kodak brownie, though i understand that they are quite rare today. originally they were priced at 1.00 each, but that was in the 1900's when they first came out. any original brownie bought today would easily be an antique.
