...I had one of those....in perfect shape. I gave it to a friend of mine that collected old radios of all types. I always wondered how valuable a radio I gave away...

I realize this is reviving and old thread, but I just came upon a box of very old radio gear, all of it new in box. There is a t least 1 minitron servo in there, did anyone ever find any info on the value of this stuff?

Thanks,
Allan

Well i have to ask the same question agian.

I recently got 2 OS minitron TX/RX from my fathers estate. But these appear to be different than the one you were descussing. Both are LIKE NEW condidtion in the original boxs. The two that i have are a set ( tx/rx) tx-6 ( 6 channel ) but the other is a slightly different ( older ? ) incased in blue anodized aluminum cases and is marked model TX-12sb ( 12 channel ) with matching rs-12 receiver ( both ) never used, never even had a battery in them.

Where do i find the value of these items for insurance reasons and possibly sale.

Thank you
Robert

The only way to get any idea would be to check with an auction site to see if anything similar is being sold. That would give you some idea of asking prices or bid prices. Another place would be to frequent the "swap-shop" meetings at trade shows or different club functions and see what asking prices are. You'll likely many times find that asking prices are often higher than anyone's willing to pay.
There really isn't a "market" price on this stuff, like you'd be able to get for other types of antique/collectible items.

At this time, old R/C equipment, including electronics, engines, and such, is such a special-interest niche, there there really aren't any prices to go by. Your two old O.S. transmitters could be worth $50.00 apiece to a few hundred, but the only way to find out for sure is to make the items available for bid and see what you get. But then you'd be selling them.
