Hey Gavin, I removed your phone number, not allowed mate for your own protection. Everyone will have a different opinion but mine is; if they were mine I wouldn't take less than $100 each in truly mint condition. Hope this helps. Regards, Wallace

Hi Gavin, Wallace is very accurate here! about 3 months ago, I had just sold a absolute mint 440A without box. I had asked 110.00 and settled for 100.00. Good luck! Cheers

Regards, Scott

I am in England and Mint Mitchell reels can go for a very high premium over here, just remember the higher cost of postage and any customs forms you may have to fill out. So if you Ebay it you might be advised to consider the worldwide market and with Paypal you should be fairly safe. I would also suggest parcel or package insurance as a requirement for international posting.

Hello Whatatoad and welcome.

Yes I think it's good advice to sell worldwide, for sure you get a much bigger audience that way.

Kind regards Roy
