Stereoview price guide

From: "Allen C. Royle"

How do I acquire a price guide on stereograph photos? I would appreciate any help or suggestions. ...

Not sure how useful price guides can be, and realize how rapidly they become obsolete, but here are two that are available:

Stereo Views: An Illustrated History & Price Guide by John S. Waldsmith (Paperback - Apr. 1, 2002)

Stereoviews, Their Realized Prices by Doc Boehme (Paperback - Nov. 7, 2005)

Suggest that you follow the current online auction market and search completed eBay auctions, while understanding the limitations.

Stereoview dealer David L. Spahr explains in an book review that "Prices may reflect the highest price ever paid on eBay but often bear little resemblance to what they are really worth on an over and over again sales basis. Sometimes a view that is a hard sale at $10 will sell for $65 on eBay to an uninformed or, ahem, 'motivated' buyer. Often a high value view may sell for 30-50% less than it's actual value on eBay."
