Currently, there is an original Model T Ford dealer's keyboard on Ebay. Current price, with 3 days to go, is $256.00, and it is not restored. I can see at least 3 extra holes in it that Ford didn't put in it. Gee, am I lucky to have got mine for free from a Ford dealer. Its not mint, but you can still see some of the white paint in the Ford script outline.

Also, within the last 2 weeks, a 26-27 accessory stoplight sold for over $200.00. It, too, was unrestored, but complete. The money I've got in T parts, sure beats the money that I'm making in the bank and in bonds.

Sounds like prices are going down. A few weeks ago one went for $3165 at the Hartung auction.

My opinion was that the $3165 board at the Hartung auction was a data entry error in the auction report.

However, a friend of my dad attended the auction and told us that the board had in fact been sold for that amount.

Prices of old stuff in general, not just Ford stuff, vary wildly depending on where they're sold. The Fisk clock I bought last week by accident at an estate sale (it was in a $3 box of tools) would probably bring over a hundred at a highly advertised automobilia auction.

You called it Steve. It's all about where you are and who else is there. My luck at advertised auctions has been almost nil. But walk into a local flea market or an estate sale and you could find a real gem at the right price. E-bay sits right up front in this senario. Every body that "knows" is there and there are some deep pockets in netland so their sale prices might not be average.

I agree Charlie. The only real bargains I've ever found on ebay were mislabeled or lost and I just happened to stumble on to them.
