It depends. They are nice bikes, however, woman's bikes have far lower values then a comparable men's bike. Are you selling it? Can you post a picture in your gallery?

Good to go a average person could ride it ten miles as is it's a $200 bike in current market. Yet if it needs any work of any kind put the value at $75-100.

50 year old tires should be replaced. Likely needs a tune up.

As is, $75-100 in a good market.

...there are a lot more guys on the Classic and Antique Bicycle Exchange site who are into olde Schwinn's.
But my impression is that the ladies model frame kind of kills any real value it might have to them. As stated above.

Its value would be as a working bicycle in a moment when new bikes of that sort are in short supply at Walmart and local bike shops.
