My mother owns this thermometer and would like to know what it is worth. I have looked on the internet and can not find another one like it.

This is all original in excellent condition; thermometer is included but not in working order. We need to know more about it.

Thanks,

jonesiegal

    It's not in excellant condition if the thermometer is broke.
  2. jonesiegal, 4 years ago
    It's not broken, fully intact. It just needs to be recalibrated.
  3. officialfuel officialfuel, 4 years ago
    How would you suggest you calibrate a sealed thermometer?

    TheOklahomaKid19 and jacksborodan who commented on the original post, do you know where I can find more information about the value of this item? This was hanging in my Grandfather's store in Texas so yes certainly from the South but now my mother owns it.

    There one on ebay for $75

    officalfuel, I have no idea but I have been told it can be done. Perhaps you know more than I, that is part of the reason I posted the item so I can find out more about it. Give me a break!
  7. officialfuel officialfuel, 4 years ago
    What do you think it's worth?
  8. jonesiegal, 4 years ago
    Well, just looked. There are 23 listed and not one is just like this one.
  9. officialfuel officialfuel, 4 years ago
    There is one on there like yours but it's not as nice.

    Who replaced the thermometer, the wood on the back looks new
  11. jonesiegal, 4 years ago
    Nope, all original. My Grandfather kept it on the wall in the convenience store. It was never hung outside. When he closed the store my father brought it home and put it in the closet. That was probably close to 30 years ago.
  12. jonesiegal, 4 years ago
    All intact, the problem with the mercury is it looks separated. I think you can make that out in one of the pictures if you look close. There seems to be a bubble between in the middle of it. Therefore, it does not give an accurate reading.
  13. officialfuel officialfuel, 4 years ago
    Your right looking at last picture again
  14. jonesiegal, 4 years ago
    I just looked at the pic of the back, it was really bright the day we took the picture, the sun is bouncing off the wood, that is why it looks so bright.

    AR8Jason, thanks for the info. We will give it a try. I just don't want to do anything that will damage it.
  16. jonesiegal, 4 years ago
    officalfuel, looking for the one you are seeing on ebay. Is it a listing or on one of their store sites; I am not seeing one like this one. Colors are close but none of the ones I see are just like it.
  17. officialfuel officialfuel, 4 years ago
    It worth what ever you can get out of it, I didn't say it was worth $75. I said I saw one on ebay similar to it. Wasn't trying to upset you guys, good luck and hope you get what you think it's worth.
  18. jonesiegal, 4 years ago
    Yes, looked at the closed ebay listings too. I have looked at RC's official website, googled it. I just can not find one like it. Seems odd to me.
  19. jonesiegal, 4 years ago
    Not upset, just thought I was missing something...
  20. jonesiegal, 4 years ago
    Well, right now it is 20 degrees outside, don't think we can do it anytime soon, but will give it a shot first chance we get.
  21. jonesiegal, 4 years ago
    Hey, thanks! Will keep my fingers crossed. Will it make a difference if it is upright or laying down?
  22. jonesiegal, 4 years ago
    You must have a more sophisticated account than I; mine only goes back 15 days...

    Nice to see one though. :)
  23. jonesiegal, 4 years ago
    Your awesome, my mother will be so excited. I can't wait to send her the links and tell her how helpful you have been.
  24. jonesiegal, 4 years ago
    Yes, logged in. If I have a store I can go back farther but if not it is 15 days. I don't want to have to pay for the store...
  25. jonesiegal, 4 years ago
    Yes, I have posted there too. Sent them emails and such, but no answers. My mother is purging some items, just looking for info for her.
  26. jonesiegal, 4 years ago
    You know anything about large safes? Looking for info on one of those too. It is the other item I have posted.
  27. jonesiegal, 4 years ago
    All your links worked just fine.

    I think have a new account with ebay, that must be the difference.
  28. tfaulk13, 4 years ago
    eBay mobile through Bonfire, has ability to research pricing and it goes back 4 to 6 months of history of listings sometimes...other times it only goes back about 90 days. this is not the eBay app for iphone, ipad, Blackberry, etc.
