I'm trying to find a value of an old MACK Truck Trade Series Booklet that I believe dates back to the late teens or early 20's. It is Titled " Mack In Warehousing Moving and Furniture Delivery. According to cover it is one of the Trade Booklet Series. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks

Items like that are hard to price....I'm into International...and the stuff I've watched can go for $2 and the same thing sell for $20. I've seen the International KB shop manuals sell for $82 and one for $182. The L-series shop manual for $35 and $102.....these were all in about the same condition.

It really does come down to who sees it and what it is worth to them.

I might pay $25 for something like that just because it is old truck related.....age does not always equate to value, but as I said I don't specifically know about Mack.

We believe it's from either 1924 or 1925 from the license plates in the pics in the booklet. No copy write date anywhere in the booklet that we could find. I have a few photos of it on my PC that could be emailed to interested parties, then put them in touch with my Mom since she has the booklet. They were going through some items that we believe came from Roberts Equipment inn Butte Montana. ( Oldest MACK dealer in the state which is now gone ) They were heavily associated with the Anaconda Mining Co. and the Berkley Pit operations in Butte from the 1940's until it's closing and sale to Montana Resources in 1976. They have yet to completely go through all of the material from the warehouse so more may be found, including a few parts from the 60's and 70's era. I'll try to keep everyone updated on what is found and available.
