How much is it worth?

I’m hoping the experts out there can help me. I’ve come across a letterpress that I’m considering purchasing and want to have a better idea of how much it is worth. Here is the info I know about it. It is a C&P Platen 10 x 15. It is the older style, has been converted to a motor. the ink rollers are in ok condition, has been in a print shop but hasn’t been used for a long time.
What do you think? I’d love any feedback.

Depending on condition and location and ease of moving are all factors. I have seen these from Free to $1000 over the last two years. One just sold here in Ohio, in great condition for $500! A friend of mine just scrapped a 12 x 18, he couldn’t even give it away! This is a tough call!

Thanks Dennis! that is very helpful to know.

It also depends in your location. Here in Australia, C&P’s are very scarce. $3000 in fair condition is not unthinkable.

have a look at this link from not long ago.
