Below is a method for appraising an antique or vintage collectible item. Read closely! There are important details.
The biggest problem with figuring out what something is worth is that people ask all kinds of crazy prices on Ebay. "Asking" prices have no meaning. You can ask a million dollars for a ball of twine, but that doesn't mean it's worth a million dollars. The real question is "what might my item actually sell for". You will find this in the Ebay "Sold listings". These are the prices people actually paid.
1) It's pretty simple to use. Go to Ebay and look for the search box near the top of the page.
2) Just to the right of that search box, in small print, it says "advanced". Click that link.
3) This will take you to the advanced search page. Type in some keywords for your item in the search box.
4) Check the box under "Search including" that says "Sold listing".
5) Click the big blue search button.
That will tell you all items listed with those keywords that have sold over that past 30 days with their selling price. Let's say there are 6 examples of your item that have sold. Ignore the highest and lowest ones, as sometimes auctions go too high or are ignored. Then, take a good look at the description of the other 4 items that sold to find out their condition. If yours is in similar condition, then you will know approximately what your item is worth.
