I find pumps in that shape are tougher to sell than originals. A nice patina Wayne 70 is worth in the $1500 range. I’d price the one pictured less than that, even though it’s obvious someone put some time and money in to it. JM2C.

Thank you, sorry had to rant to just get an answer. I have not sold one in years and he wanted to know.

I don't think originals had rust on them. I am struggling with your logic of more value for rust.

I’m guessing you don’t buy and sell many pumps then. The ones that bring the money are nice originals with good patina. Patina doesn’t necessarily mean “rust”. I stopped restoring pumps years ago because the hobby was shifting much more to original pumps (as was I). But to each their own.
