Default Meadows - Came Across a Stone Burr Mill

If my research is correct, based on the serial number, this is a 20" mill built in 1930. The 1930 part is what is throwing me. This looks to be in entirely to nice of shape to be from 1930. The wood doesnt seem worn, the paint is to nice, and the sticker is in great shape.

I am wondering if this could be a product of Meadows restoration service.

I know I can call Meadows, and I am planning to but I found it at 6 last night and am to pick it up at 9 this morning. Not sure I can get Meadows by then.

Also, what kind of value on these? I dont want to under pay the nice lady but I also dont want to over pay

Thoughts?

The paint and decal look to be non-original. The serial number tag with a 1-800 phone number definitely is not from 1930.

It looks to had been restored. Meadows used to stamp the serial number in one of the wood pieces. I do not remember which one off the top of my head. Friends of mine are the ones that restore the mills for Meadows.

Kirk and Mike are spot on. Meadows originally stamped the serial number into the end of the top boards above the little spout on the side of the machine. The aluminum plate is evidence of a restoration performed by Meadows. They often do this when the original boards that had the serial number need to be replaced. Value on these goes all over the place, ranging from $600-$5,000. Evidence of restoration helps, but its current condition certainly hurts the value. I would venture a guess that $2000 would be a good starting point, IMHO.
