My 96-year-old mother has a ladies' Monark Silver King that was purchased for her in about 1939. She used it into the 1940's, but it's been sitting in sheds since then. It's far from mint condition, but seems like it would have some value to a collector. Any suggestions on how to go about determining its value and get a fair price for it?

Are those 24” or 26” wheels?

Not sure on wheel size, I'd have to get back to you. Just eyeballing them, I'd guess 26". Is one more desirable than the other?

These ladies Silver Kings don't bring a ton of money. but she has some nice details going on. She comes equipped with a desirable butterfly stand, the Torrington Deco stem is intact, Delta long-cone Hornite is a bit beat, but all there, Torrington Dixon Jr bars are cool & the Troxel Toolbox saddle is just the cherry on top. Grandma was a pretty cool kitten back in her day:smilecat:
