I have a Toledo scale and I would be interested in knowing its value and people who might be interested in acquiring it.

Toledo Made in Windsor Ontario, Canada, Design patented in 1900, Style 415A  Serial # 250948

Thank you,


Hi Michel,

Your scale was manufactured in the early 1900s for use in candy stores or at the candy counter of drug or dime stores. With its 3 pound capacity it is desirable to both decorators and collectors alike. It appears to have its original paint which makes it more valuable to collectors of computing scales.  Retail value might be $200-$450.  

Hope this helps.
