We recently acquired a Kellogg Nickel Plated Triple Cylinder Air Pump, not sure about age. It says "Special 12." There was one similar to this posted on this Forum but that one was made of brass. We have all the parts, including the screws. We took off the screws to examine the pistons/plungers and did some light cleaning. It does still pump air. The original rubber tube has stiffened and cracked, but it should be an easy replacement.
Does anyone have any information on this?
My opinion is the quick release chuck is not original to the pump. It probably originally had a knurled, screw chuck.
Casual search on Google books -
Doesn't look like a $4000 pump. Good luck selling it???
Good luck finding one like it!

You are totally out of your element. That is not a rare pump.
Even if it were, it's only worth $50 to $200.
The only thing that could make it worth slightly more is if you knew if it was provided as original equipment for a particular make of automobile.
That pump you saw like yours here on this site is mine from a Accessory of the day post which you found by doing a Google search and finding my photo.
Your sniffing glue if you think yours is worth $3,912.02. $225 would be fair price since it's nickel plated.
I guess we can settle for a Kellogg Model 10 for 1/100th of the price of a Model 12.
Now I feel bad I only paid the guy at Hershey $35.00 a couple of years back for the triple pump....of course mine doesn't have the ultra expensive nickel plating.

I have a like-era, like-condition cast iron, steel, and wood push-type lawn mower.
Looks like my retirement questions are now resolved. My wife will be thrilled.
I'll go tell her now ....
I paid $125 for mine a dozen years ago and it's in near mint condition with no bruises. I have never seen a nickel plated one and would guess it was equipment for a upper crust motor vehicle. My guess of $225 reflects that and the higher prices things sell for on Ebay these days.
What kind of car were these for ?? I found one today in my horde ?855
