I have acquired a beautiful Scheeffer Type E Watt Meter. I am looking to sell it, but I have not had any luck at all in finding any information out about it other than it was from the Diamond Co. which was around from 1885 to 1905. It would seem that they are quite hard to find, or there would be more info about them. If anyone could help me to learn more about it, and maybe a ballpark figure on what it's worth to a collector, I would appreciate it.

I see one on ebay listed recently and good luck with that price whom ever is selling it. They are around and really not that scarce or valuable forsale. I have owned several of them over the years and also turned down several more. Nice looking meter but as Said, its surely not a rare bird...

Either way, you didn't answer my original request, which was, could you please tell me what it IS worth? I don't know what someone else may be selling it for on Ebay, but I am interested in what its actual value is. I have spent some time trying to learn about these meters, and frankly I have not had much luck, so I assumed that this would be the place to ask such a question.

The one listed on Ebay was just reduced by $400.00 down to $500.00 and still is setting their so this should give you a idea on what they are fetching no a days on the open market. You first off have to find someone who wants to buy it as it is a very very limited interest to say the least. Surely this must be yours listed on the BAY..?

when searching for prices on ebay to determine value, i usually select "SOLD ITEMS" items check box on the left of a search result, that will eliminate anyone with a crack price on a meter and show what those meters actually sold to a person for.
most of the prices i have provided in the prices section of this forum were from the sold listings that way it minimized the inflated crack prices people put on things.
thank you for checking out this forum, there are a number of very knowledgeable guys out here.
