Default Royal corn sheller

Hi, can anyone tell me what would be a good price for a Royal corn sheller? I have seen price approximations of $100 in other threads. Would this apply to the Royal also? Are these more rare than other types, or does that not make a difference with corn shellers?

I'm assuming that this is a wooden sheller. Is it a one-hole or two-hole (refers to the number of openings at the top where you can insert ears of corn)? 2-holers are much more desireable and valuable than one-holers. Wooden shellers are also highly varied in price due to condition of paint and how sturdy the wood is. Those in sturdy condition without a lot of slop in the joints and without rot command higher prices. Similarly, the amount of original paint has a lot to do with value. I just picked one up this weekend (see link to another thread where pictures are), and I paid $200 for it. That's about double what I would normally pay but it is very solid with practically no wood damage and the original paint is fantastic. I generally try to stick to $100-125 on wooden shellers on average.

If it is an Appleton Royal Sheller, You are fine in that range. I have had several, but kept the best one (orig paint alettering). Built down the road from you in Batavia, IL.

You can see part of mine behind the 2 hole badger...I guess I should take a better photo some time.
