FS Splitkein Glider Cross Country Skis

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I found these skis in my great aunts attic. I know nothing about them, how old they are, what they're worth...nothing. If anyone could please help. They are dark blue, they say Splitkein on one side and Glider on the other. How do I find out information on them?
Thanks!!

It's a well-known nordic ski brand with a long history

http://www.woodenskis.com/classic_brands.htm#splitkein

 

 

If the logo looks like this, they're from the 1980s, and produced under license, worth $5-10 to someone who already has boots that will fit into the bindings that are on there

 

 

 


If the logo looks like this, they're probably unskiable at this point - worth maybe the cost of shipping to a sentimentalist:

 

 

 

If they have wood grain showing, and if they look -completely unused- no scratches or dings or gouges or hairline cracks - only then do they start to climb in value to the dizzying heights of $40+  to someone who wants ski lodge wall decor.

Thank you so much for the information! They look the most similar to the middle ones. I wasn't expecting them to be worth a fortune, just wanted to know how much to try and sell them for! Thanks again!
