A few years ago while clean out grandma's house I received an old Maytag wringer washer model N2LS with a serial number 496759. I'm trying to find out as much information as possible and it's value.
The story behind it, Grandpa bought the washer for Grandma as a surprise bringing it home after work. Grandma was happy to have a new machine but she really wanted an automatic washer. So Grandpa left it in the basement and covered it up.
The next day he bought Grandma an automatic model. The new wringer washer remained under the cover and was never used, it has the original factory grease in the agitator.
I will add some photos once I figure out how to download them from my phone.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Not to be glib

But any vintage washer; NOS, never used, etc... is worth what someone is willing to pay.

In past have seen "new" Maytag wringer washers go for between $300, $500 and up. However much will depend upon several factors including often where machine is located.

Often people will jump up at a chance for a "new" vintage washer, making all sorts of commitments to seller. Then reality of how much it costs to ship the thing, or they themselves going to collect personally sets in. More so if they are far to very much away from where washer is located.

Hello Launderess
I appreciate your reply. I know shipping and demand always sets the price for any item being sold.
I'm more interested in when it was manufactured and any history this model has.
I'm a bit of a collector of old things with history, ie; wood floor joist from old NCR building where the Bombe decoder was build, steel I beam from Delphi GM plant on Wisconsin Blvd, 2 mechanical slot machines from MGM, jukebox from the community I live in that was sused for Saturday night sock hops in the 1950's.
I like items that tell a story.
Hopefully I can learn more about this Maytag N2LS because it is in such beautiful condition.
