Ransomes for Ipswich "The Lion"

HI All, 

Looking for some guidance and I have my father-in-laws old lawn mover and looking to sell it but wondering if i could get an honest opinion and idea of the price to sell it for ... 

the money is to go to my father-in-law but he needs help with the sale ..

i think with some tlc this would make a great show mower  ... its just been sat in the shed along with a old qualcast rp35 

any help advice would be great

Thank you

Hello Leigh

Welcome to the forum, an honest opinion of value is difficult, having sold many of these they never fetch the money you think they ought to, the Lion in collecting circles is reasonably common, you have the benefit of the thrower plate & box which may add value, & hopefully a woodworm free handle?

But that said to a collector who has a bit of knowledge say £15- £40. You will see on ebay the badges alone are being advertised at up to £40, but not sure if they are selling at that figure.

Suggest you put in our classified sales section & perhaps seek offers?

Thanks for the update Clive, I'll post in the classified ..  now wormworm just needs a little rub down and varnish ..

He also has a Qualcast EP35 mains electric cylinder mower with grassboxVariable speed power drive systemComplete with grassbox
