iGuide?Americana Price Guide : Current Market Values of Americana
About the iGuide?Americana Price Guide
Searching for Americana market values? You have come to the right place! IGuide?is proud to host the online Americana Price Guide.The price guide is maintained by Jon R. Warren,
whose price guide books have been the authority on collectibles values since 1985. The searchable database consists of detailed reports on a ever-growing list of items. Each report includes current market
values in ten different grades, as well as a section for "Real Market Data", actual prices fetched at auction. The database is updated daily.
Of course, any item is only worth what a willing buyer will pay to a willing seller. iGuide?is "just a guide." Please be aware that PRICES VARY WIDELY from region to
region. Current estimated values are the result of much research. And we invite anyone to help add and update data. Read the "What's A Wiki" section below for more info
on how to help.
When selling wholesale, or selling your entire collection at one time, expect to be offered anywhere from 30% to 50% of the total retail value depending on the quality and condition of your items.
About The Estimated Values Shown
The Estimated Values shown on each web page are out-of-date in many cases. One person cannot possibly keep every page up-to-date, so that is why we created a Wiki system to allow anyone to help maintain the database.
We invite anyone who sees a problem with any Estimated Value to report it to us by clicking the Report A Problem icon at the top of each page (it looks like this
How To Search
Input kewords into the searchbox at the top of each page, then click the WHAT'S IT WORTH button. The search engine will find matching pages based on keywords you type into the Search Box. The engine searches all categories of objects,
not just this particular category, so you may get some irrelevant items in your search results. Too many results? Be more specific. Not enough results? Be less specific.
Be A Contributor
We invite expert collectors and dealers to contribute knowledge to the search engine for the shared benefit of the collecting community. It's easy, anyone can add images and
contribute information to the web pages in the database. Read more in the "What Is A Wiki?" section below.
What is a Wiki?
A Wiki is a web page that anyone can make changes to. The job of maintaining accurate information is far too monumental for one person, but a
community of enthusiasts can maintain many thousands of pages quite easily, each person adding a bit at a time. That's the idea behind iGuide?s "What's It Worth Wiki".
The most famous example of a Knowledge Wiki is Wikipedia, of course. But, our vision is that someday iGuide?will become the Wikipedia of Art,
Antiques, Collectibles, Memorabilia....and Americana.
iGuide?is here to provide the platform and tools to enable researchers and collectors to share knowledge.
Anyone can contribute to the WIKI. Upload images, improve descriptions, update pricing, add auction results and "Real Market Data", add missing pages, and so on.
If you see something wrong, fix it. If you see something missing, add it.

What is "Real Market Data"?
Wouldn't it be great if you could determine what price constitutes a "fair
deal" before you made a deal? We think so. That's why we've created
iGuide's Real Market Data (RMD) pricing, our proprietary system that does
the research for you. It's a guide that gives you updated information
on what you should pay for an item or what you should expect to receive - without having to spend hours
researching. iGuide's Real Market Data pricing system is the
internet's best guide to market value pricing and the only pricing system
designed with the consumer in mind. Our exclusive RMD pricing is based
on real sales data, gathered from auction sites in near real-time. This ensures
you get the most accurate pricing available, as quickly as possible!
