Anchor identification help

We are having a flea market at the marina this weekend and I want to try and sell these three anchors . I want to advertise them right . The big danforth type and the yachtsman type weigh 25 lbs . And the smaller danforth type weighs eight pounds . Is that how should advertise them ? What are they worth , I'm sure not much . I don't use them and thought someone might .

They should be worth just about as much as new if not too rusty and not bent.


BUT...people are funny....used they think they should be 1/2 price but they are 100% serviceable and lifetime is hardly touched. I would start with 75% of new and be willing to go less if I need to get rid of them.

Danforth's are a great anchor for the right conditions but there are so many of them lying around boat yards abandoned you'd be lucky to get $10 ea.

Greetings,
Mr. PM. I haven't got a clue as to value but NEW, the REAL Danforth (Standard) is selling for ~$37 for a 9 lb. and ~$115 for a 25 lb. (current Defender prices) so maybe $20 and $45?
The Yachtsman? Sure, $45 as well. But this is all just a guess on my part. What are you going to do with all the money you make?

$10 for the small Dan. $25 for the big Dan.

The "Yachtsman" is either a Herreshoff or very close to it.
I'd try for $100 and come down a lot if needed. Pretend it's worth $100. Put on a good act and it may BE worth $100.

Sounds like maybe dollar a pound after haggling and everybody is happy . What about 3/4" anchor line ? Maybe .10 ft ? I have about 500 ft or so .

You no linger need a storm anchor line?

The tiny Danforth would be a good dink anchor .

We have plenty on the boat for where we are now . This is some extra . Although if I ever retire and head your way south we might need it .
