Thanks for this site! My wife and I watch American Pickers faithfully every week, plus the reruns, plus what we have T.Vo'd, so we've learned a lot since the show started. Mike and Frankie, you're the best!
We were at a small town auction recently for a rural volunteer fire department trying to raise money at the annual auction. My wife and I are brand new to the auction scene, so we weren't exactly knowledgable about everything that went on; all I know is I got some absolutely killer deals on a pickup truck load of stuff!
I bought a few nice old items, primarily 3 pieces that I'd like to get someone's opinion on the estimated value of.
The first is an old scythe, with the paper tag still in tact, readable to the eyes, but not really in the picture above. I bought this and 2 others, the other 2 are in great shape also, but no labels.
The second item, is an old single handed bowsaw, with a turnbuckle adjustment, very sturdy, nice shape.
The last, is an old 2 man crosscut saw. It's 60" long, blade is 3 3/8" wide at the center tooth, all in nice shape. (Note:) The last photo is of the paper label on the scythe in the first photo...)
I certainly do appreciate any input on these items.
Thank you again!
