Phillips ladies - any value?

I was offered a ladies' frame Phillips 3-speed in decent shape. They said it was from the 60s. Lovely bike but have no use for it, so is there any market value? It's definitely a higher end model based on the chromed chain guard, seat bag, and pump. Looks to be all original and dark green!

Nice 3-speeds in good shape have some value to the right customer. If you are in an urban area with a university and it's not too hilly there's a better pool of buyers among the young and hip, if they aren't broke. If is is nothing exotic or fancy, but solid and very nice looking I would try to get $150 for it but would come down on the price if interest lagged. Pix would help nail it.

They were a $40 bike when new and still might be on a good day. Roger

There's not a big market for British 3 speed step through framed bikes and there are a lot of them around from the 50's and 60's in great shape. In very good ready to ride shape they go for about $100-150 depending on market.
