      This site isn't for finding out values although there is a link at the top of the page for Appraisals where you can pay for an appraisal. I will for warn you that the appraisal is $30 last I knew and that would almost totally kill any value in your ships. These are usually tourist items that are mass produced so have little value. I have owned several over the years and found it better to save my money unless they were included in a bulk buy.

      I know this site won't give values- I need info.
      The models are all close to or over 100 years old, especially the Sarah. The red one has notes n a wood box made for it. These are not 'tourist models'

      Well my dear I will take your word for it. God knows nobody would fake a note. I wish you the best in learning about them. Welcome to the site.

      Suggest you do a posting for each one and include detailed photos/ description.

      I don’t see significant age on any— maybe 100 years old was a reference to the original ship?? Photo of the note would be helpful as well.

      I was going to suggest that scottvez but she seemed to not accept anything but she is sitting on a gold mine so I just shut up. The pictures are taken into the sun and difficult to see. In picture four she has one sitting on the window sill in direct sunlight which is one way you make a new ship look old if you are doing a reproduction. Either way direct sunlight is a no no.

      They don't seem to be what is called museum quality. The details are just not sharp enough. They seem better than decorator quality.

      fhrjr2 - 'she's sitting on a gold mine'?
      Interesting that shooting them on the window sill where they sit is considered manipulative ('a way to make a model look older').
      I never said they were museum quality, just if anyone had info to share
      I have many more pics but the site would only allow 4 at a time. I have pics of the note and many of the details.
