First, See What Similar Items Sold For
There is no 100% surefire way to determine what any collectible is worth, because in the end it’s only worth what some else is willing to pay for it. Therefore, the best way to determine your specific movie prop’s value is to see what similar or identical items have sold for. Luckily for us, you can see what items sold for on eBay using eBay’s Advanced Search and filtering for completed listings.
Then Adjust That Number For Your Specific Movie Prop
Once you’ve seen what other similar items have sold for, adjust that number based on your item. How long ago was that? If it was a long time ago you can adjust up for inflation. How was it’s condition compared to yours? You can adjust up or down based on that as well.
When In Doubt, Get A Professional Appraisal
After adjusting for your specific movie prop’s specs you can begin to form a ballpark estimate on what your movie props are worth. However if you’re dealing with a high value item or a large collection, it’s always best to get a professional appraisal, which we can help with!
