Hi

I have my late




I have my late husbands skis purchased in Germany second hand in late 60s and would like to sell them but have no idea of value. I do not have the poles any more and the skis are well used.

I feel quite confused as to know if these are HEAD standard or if they have nay value at all.
I live in uk .

Please, please any info most useful

Definitely not HEAD skis.  possibly a Japanese brand.  and marks saying where it was made?  not one of the typical French or Austrian brands.

If he purchased them in the late 60s they were already out of date.  These skis probably only have decorative value, like mounted above a fireplace in a ski cabin. I doubt you could get much, or possibly anything for them.

Sometimes the old, non-painted (varnished) skis have decorative value, roughly in the $100-200/pair range for use as coat racks, wall art, etc. But, I think that has fallen off a lot in the last 2-3 years as a less rustic, more modern (clean and sterile to me) look has gotten popular. It really depends on the region you live in.

Possible value for a pub near a ski area to use for decorating.
