Just one other quick note regarding valuations of John Wayne related items:
The question I get asked, probably more than any other question is: “I have a [John Wayne related item] and I was wondering what the value of it is. Can you tell me how much it is worth.” There are two answers to this question. The short answer is, “I don't know.” Not very helpful, but it is accurate. The long answer would be, “There are three things that determine the value of any item. They are: 1: Rarity, 2: Condition, and 3: Things are worth whatever someone is willing to pay for them.
There are, of course, other factors involved, including where you live. An item worth $100 in California, may be worth $1,000 in New York, or $10,000 in England. It depends on the availability of that item in different geographic locations. Perhaps the best way to determine the value of an item, outside of hiring a professional appraiser, is to go online and see if there are any other similar items for sale, and what they are selling for. Not what people are asking for them, but what people are actually paying for them. Ebay has a “completed listings” feature that shows what an item has sold for. Take into account what the seller is charging for shipping the item, and include that in your approximate value figure. Also pay attention to the sold items condition. If it is in better condition than yours, then yours may not be as valuable. If it is in worse condition than yours, then yours may be worth more.
Without actually seeing and handling and examining your item personally, and doing the research myself based on what I see, I really am in no position to offer anything other than a guess as to your items value. With so many variables involved in determining an items value, I prefer not to do that.
Thank you for visiting The New Frontier website, I really do appreciate you stopping by, and my best of luck to you with your John Wayne item.
