Default Value of fire engine steam gauge

I have a brass gauge marked American fire engine co. Cincinnati,Oh
Steam from 0 to 180. It has the fireman's cross on the back. Appears to be in good condition.

it is worth what someone who wants it is willing to pay.

Old gauge collectors might place a high or low value on it depending on it's appeal or how common they are.

Photo's might help determine value.

eBay,

Only thing I can say is eBay.

You won't get an accurate value here, but it's worth what someone will pay. I just dumped 2 ads here, sorry to Harry.

Some people here just complain all the time about $$$

eBay IS the current value market, look for same/similar, go from there.

nice old gauge.
Rough guess would be in the $100-250 range as it looks to be in good condition and complete.
Fire buffs would be the market I'd go for.
Lots of them collect things associated with fire service for their man caves.

I would say it might bring $400.00. It's nickel with an open face and it's got the label on the back
