Vincent sent me 2 pictures of an old coffee grinder he bought to be identified and appraised. Here are the pictures of the Enterprise coffee grinder.
As you can see from the photos that there are no markings visible. I don’t know if it’s the quality of the pictures sent, but just from the pictures, it was hard to tell. Usually, the coffee catch up has model number written, such as “NO” on the left side and “3” on the right side. But apparently, the painted numbers are erased.
Now the painting on the top is barely visible, but you can kind of see it. And the white handles on the lid and the catch cup tells that it is indeed Enterprise #3. Enterprise #5 has a very similar design, but it has different paintings on. I can’t remember clearly, but probably some a flag.
I told Vincent that if everything’s cleaned and restored, he could sell it for anywhere between $750-$1,000. There were 2 sales recently where Enterprise #3 was sold for $950 (good condition) and $600 (OK condition). Both grinders had all original parts.
If you think this is something else, feel free to comment.
