Picked these up at an antique store that was going out of business, and was wondering if anyone could help me determine if they are worth anything, if they are desirable, or so common I couldnt give them away
First is Brass rimmed, 1915-16
Second and third are also E&J, tail and cowl
Fourth is CLASCO, Tail
Rob you could give them to me!
Rob -- The first one is 1915 only; 16's had no brass trim. The second is a '17 and later cowl lamp. The third is the tail lamp for a non-electric T from '22 - '25 or something like that. You can check the Encyclopedia for the exact dates. The 4th is for a RHD T, probably Canadian. Clasco made the Canadian lamps.
Of course they're worth something. The '15 might bring $100, while the others are more common, probably $30-40. A guy with a Canadian car needing the correct tail lamp might pay more for that one.
I have two Clasco side lights (not matching unfortunately) for my Canadian built 15. I would love a Clasco tail light. Would pay all costs (of course.)
Ah, now I see that the Clasco is not a brassy;
one of my side lights is steel and a set of steel Clasco lights would look good on my 18
Gavin you answered a question I've had for years. Got this lamp when I was looking for some E&J or Browns for a 1910/11.
