Accurate side-plates, frames and spools for Penn reels. Since they are no longer manufactured, what kinda value are we talkin here?... If there's some kinda collectors value, what would be a reasonable price for say a $50 part that was for sale back when they's makin 'em?

The prices for them has doubled on the big auction site in the past year or so, used to be 100.00 a set, now they want $100.00 per plate.

But do they get that price?

Depends on the part and color as well as what else is available.  There are alot of user set ups that can be had cheap, and some that draw stupid prices.  If it's that last piece for a set, the sky is the limit.  A NOS handle assembly in a rare color may go for as much as a whole reel with a few scratches.  Frames go from $20 to $70 for the jiggy size and smaller.  Side plates, $50 to $250 depending.  Accurate gears $40 to $125.  Sooooo your best bet is to list them for just over the "I want to keep it" amount and see what happens.  I've seen full accurate conversions at tackle stores specializing in new gear go for $70 in great condition and beat up lumps go for $250 on eBay.

If you're looking at ebay there's those over priced ones that are on there forever. If you look at the sold listings you can get an average that is fairly accurate I would think for ebay selling. There's a few sellers who's prices are so high I'm suprised  they ever sell anything. Part of my morning ritual is going thru the newell listings and some of them have been on there for a few years, doesn't cost anything to list it so they continue with the wishful thinking.

Kinda sounds like the JDL treasures E-bay store. Those guys are high, but you can bargin 'em down. I've offered 'em 1/2 the asking price, held firm during the offer/counter-offer phase, and gotten my price in the end.

I'm not selling anything, nor am I in the market for Accurate stuff, but ya never know about the future...
If I was sellin, I probably wouldn't tryin' employ some way a gettin an unfairly high price for my stuff.
Just my thing. Also, I won't tryin take advantage a someone sellin who is ignorant of the "real" higher value, either. I stop just short of informing them of what I consider the real market value of their stuff is.
I know it's just everyday supply/demand economics, but there's too much deceptive "steppin over the line " stuff goin on out there for my comfort level.
