Classic Rudge value?

A couple months ago I posted pictures of a 1930's Rudge ladies bike That was donated to the Silicon Valley Bicycle Exchange.

My co conspirators have asked me to ask you all for an appraisal I wrote 2 posts , # 22676 and 22665 describing it .

You can read a write up by the guy that worked on it here https://bikex.org/20-blog/186-rudge-...h-antique-bike
And there is a picture below. We want to sell it and want your input as to its real value in the market place both on Craigs list and on E bay.

Thanks,
Cap'n Jonny

...I'm really bad on valuing stuff like that. Have you considered asking over on the CABE ? I think there are some people more knowledgeable on 1930's-40's stuff who hang out there.

registration is free

most of the cycles discussed are from domestic U.S. producers

there are however a number of enthusiasts for Brit planetaries who post regularly

these are typically located in the "vintage lightweights" forum
