I visitor to my site recently asked me about the value of his box. I referred him to this area of the site that talks about box valuation…https://www.lanecedarbox.com/copy-of-collectors-corner.
However, this got me thinking about perhaps providing a “Price Guide” on the site as a reference for the valuation of the Lane miniature boxes.
I don’t have time here to go into what may be involved in that project but I thought it would be interesting to report the very unofficial and un-scientific results of Lane miniature box sales that took place in the past month on ebay.
Keep in mind, I have reported in the past that e-bay usually has around 300 boxes up for auction/sale at any given time. In the last 30 days or so, I was surprised to find there were 116 boxes sold! This may be due to it being December and Christmas gift purchasing season?
72% were Short boxes including Girl Graduate Plan boxes and Post-GGP boxes
22% were Tall boxes
The remaining 6% were TFF and SB and SR
The average price paid for a Short box was $16.86 not including shipping and the average price for a Tall box was $15.36.
The most paid was around $57.00 and the least was $1 – again no shipping included.
There wasn’t any rhyme or reason for the purchase prices that I could tell – new, old, GGP or not, Tall, Short…it just doesn’t matter too much.
Something to think about…any suggestions?
I’ll visit this topic again soon.
