Crescent Bikes - in original packaging

We had a bike shop in the early 70's and have original Crescent Bikes. What is the value/market? How do I get an appraisal?

Welcome to the forums. Crescent was a full range manufacturer so the biggest factor is going to be the model(s) of bicycles. Next, while they are in factory packaging, things like humidity can still do substantial damage, so condition must also be considered.

Post some pictures of your Crescent bikes so we can see what they look like.

I have heard of bikes in their original packaging. I'm not sure if they are really worth more than an unused bike. Pretty interesting that they would be in a box though. I imagine these are low-end Crescents, which were okay but not particularly valuable

Are there model names on the boxes? are the boxes open? can you see anything like the type of tubing or names on the parts?
