Value of Vintage Lund Wood Skis?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi there...I'm wondering if anybody here might be able to help me.  I was given a pair of wooden skis and I'm wondering what their approximate value might be?

 

They have a Lund logo on them, the came with bamboo poles and the round metal thing at the end of the pole is tied on with leather, the bindings are metal and have springs on them.  The woodwork looks in good condition considering I'm guessing these skis are almost 80-90 years old.

 

anyhow I was going to sell them for $80 but as I started looking around they seem to be more valuable than that. I'm not looking to make a bunch of money...but if they are worth a few hundred I don't want to give them away.

 

Thank you!

Welcome to EpicSki!

 

As all things in life, things are worth what you can get for them.   I know that sounds smug, and its not meant to be, but I have a pair of skis from Northwood in Minnesota that may be worth a lot but when I tried to find out a value, I realized that they are worth what someone is willing to pay at the time.  

 

You may be listing yours at a good time to draw more $$  

Good luck!

People would buy these to hang on their wall, perhaps over a fire place....so the question is...will these look good on someones wall?  If so, the price goes up...if not....price goes down.

Hi Skidude....I also have a pair of Lund Skis and have considered selling them as well. With my research so far, I have mine dated to 1927-1930's. They may be a tad older for they are marked with the number 1087. I have seen Lunds marked in the 9000's that don't seem to be as old as mine. I have searched for more information on their numbering system and have had just no luck ( go figure :) I also compared my bindings to the ones I have viewed and they are different. The pair I found marked 9457, the seller was asking $797.00...so don't give yours away for 80.00. I do believe Lund is no longer in business. This will increase any value. I will continue my search and if I come across any new information.....I will pass it along.

People can ask for the moon.  Doesn't mean they'll get it.

 

 

 

OP:  If your bamboo poles have the original leather baskets, they're probably worth more than the skis.
