Here on the east coast I've seen them go for $100 and up at auctions.

I have several, that vary in condition from complete basket cases, to good working condition. I have seen them from $35 to over $200, depending on condition and maker.----Roland

Hi Bob,

The value of one of these mills depends a lot on the quality of the mill, and how badly you want it. If the mill has a fancy cast iron hopper with a lot of decoration, such as seen on the Hocking Valley mills, you can expect to pay as much as $400 for one in good operating condition around here, (eastern North Carolina). A less fancy mill with a wooden hopper in good operating order would sell from $100 to $250.

These mills are really a great crowd pleaser, but since the e-coli scare several years ago, I decided it wasn't worth the risk of getting sued if someone complained of a stomache ache.

Good luck, and take care.

My cousin has one that my dad found for him in 1975. He restored it that winter. Ever since then he has taken it to churches, fire hall bbq's, and any other non-profit organization and sets it up and sells cider for them. He has a secret blend that I don't even know, but boy is it good and he sells it like crazy. The proceeds go to the organization and he just has a blast with it. It is nice to see him use it, and watch an engine WORK for its space in the garage, and not out in the yard under a tarp!!
