I've scoured the internet to compare asking prices for Edison Home Phonographs (model C) and have seen a broad range of asking prices. I understand that you can ask for any price you want but that doesn't mean you're going to get it. I want to sell my collection, home morning glory horn and ~85 very nice cylinders. I also understand that condition is one of the biggest factors when it comes antiques like these. Haven't quite figured out how to attach images to these posts but let me say that the phonograph is in remarkable shape with no damage and little to no wear. Likewise for the horn, other than a small spot where the paint has rubbed of from inserting and removing the horn. The cylinders are in wonderful shape as well, most of them look as though they've never been played. I just don't know what something like this goes for and would love some input. Thank you!!
I've actually tried that but haven't seen any model B's up for sale. I have seen a few up for auction on Kovels and Skinner's Auctioneers but both of these had cygnet horns with them which makes me ask two questions (reason I ask is because the Home B were sold for significantly more than most other home models). First, is it standard for cygnet horns to pull ~$200 more on average than a Morning glory horn? Second, the box for Home Bs were not designed for cygnet horns, were they?
