    It is a magic lantern advertising slide from the early 20th century.

    The value is very minimal due to the damage. In perfect condition it would still probably be less than $30.

    Just curious how come ith would not be worth more? You would think since it is so small and could break easily.

    These lantern slides have a limited collector following.

    Take a look at ebay "magic lantern slide" to see what is currently out there on the market. If you look under completed auctions, it will give you an idea on prices paid recently by collectors.
