First, Try To Find Comparable Items To See What They Recently Sold For
The more surefire way to come up with a ballpark estimate of what any collectible is worth is by seeing what similar items have sold for recently. The problem with movie props is that they’re usually one-of-a-kind, so finding anything similar is extremely difficult. If you purchased your movie prop in an auction format, that’s a pretty reliable indicator for it’s true value. From there you can compound a return rate on it based on how long you’ve owned it. If you did not purchase it in an auction format, then the price you paid for it isn’t reliably market-rate, so you should try your best to find something similar to price it against. One way to do this is to use eBay’s advanced search to find auctions that have completed with at least one bid and search for your movie prop or similar movie props.
Ask Some Experts
Another reliable way to determine the value of your movie prop is to ask a collectibles expert. They can be found at auction houses, collectible stores and pawn shops. Remember, it’s important to get multiple opinions because even the experts can make mistakes!
