So I picked that sterling sign the other day and in the same barn I found three Bennett air meters in original boxes- never taken out of boxes still have plastic over them from the fifties. Two are green one is red. Even the boxes say Bennett on them. Anyone have any idea of market value? I'm going back up Friday to try to buy and would love sone pricing assistance. Thanks guys

How do you put a price on the Holy Grail of air meters?

What model number air meter are we talking about? Have pictures?

Bennett and ECO shared the same factory location after 1930.

Yes I have the other two one turquoise colored and another red. I paid quite a bit. Anyone have any clue of value? Just trying to see how much I can recoup for the two I'm keeping 😁

Well no one had a ballpark value so I listed it on eBay to let the world decide. I'll be curious to see the value

Bil, perhaps you would want to list the eBay auction number here, since you are an Old Gas member. Old Gas receives a small amount from eBay (goes to help run Old Gas), if a person bids through the link at the bottom of the page. John
