I got this old 2” stanley Chisel in a box of things from an auction I attended recently. Any idea of a realistic value. I am not interested in the chisel but it does look pretty neat. If I were in a stronger position I probably would not even sell the chisel just due to it’s neat vintage U.S. history.

On Ebay the exact chisel is found and the seller is asking 75.00. But he might be just too high, not sure though.

Thanks for the advice fellow lumberjocks.

The one for $75 is a re list. Started it $100. Fair price $40-60 maybe. It is a nice chisel. Good luck.

I agree it is a little over priced, but It is in nice condition. As long as the back looks the same.

I would bump it to $50-$65. Only because the 2” isn’t as common.
