    Nice collection. Check Ebay for some idea of value. Sell on Ebay. Honeywell people might scoop them up.
    Any takers here.
    ENJOY THE RIDE

    I'm headed to Nashville tomorrow to trade a guitar amp so I'm gonna head by the Antique Archeology place and see what they say or maybe if they can appraise them. I just don't go into Nashville that often so I figure why not. Thanks for the replies.

    I'm not sure how much the round Honeywell ones would be worth. I replace those maybe two to four times a month.

    See if you can find a model # on those ones.

    The box the one above the one wrapped on newspaper says TA-151-0-3 The manual with it appears to be at least from the 50-60s but can't find a for sure date.

    I think I have 3 barber Colman ones that same size, including the newspaper wrapped one.

    Would anyone on here be interested in buying the lot of these? If so PM me with an offer and we'll go from there, I'd prefer not to deal with ebay.

    I did go to the American Pickers store but never went inside because I met Mike out in a little side street about to get on his motorcycle and talked to him for a second and it wasn't anything he was looking to buy. All the stuff in that store were big sort of restored signs and stuff.

    I know this is a year old thread, but I'm trying to understand how my T861a thermostat is supposed to work. I see you had one mounted on the wall and I thought I saw the box for it in your pictures...I'd much appreciate if you have some time and have the instructions around that you could photo for me please.

    Old Thermostats

    Quote Originally Posted by quixotic View Post
    So I bought a house from a guy who was a bit of a hoarder. The house was built in the 60s and he was the only owner and when I was going through the attic, I kept noticing boxes of old antique thermostats. At the time, I didn't think anything of it. I just went through the boxes again, and it appears they are very old and possibly worth a lot of money. I haven't counted for sure but it seems that they are around 30 or 40 total.

    Almost all of them appear to be Honeywell. They seem to range in various ages but nothing close to being modern. There are some round, some rectangle, vertical reading, horizontal reading, cast iron, plastic, some with clocks, some in the original boxes with original paperwork, etc. I will try to get some pictures of them more in depth tomorrow. Most of them seem to have been kept very well and a lot of them are wrapped in cloths to preserve them.

    I might be looking to sell them on here but I honestly am really just looking for more info about them and their age. I will try to edit this post sometime tomorrow with in-depth pictures and serial numbers and whatever else I can find. In the little research I have done, this collection seems to be very extensive compared to what I've seen. Any info or sites with guides would be greatly appreciated because I am not an HVAC guy and know nothing about it. Thank you.
    Do you still have the old thermostat collection? Please email with more details. I have seen the pictures and would like to talk with you. Thanks again,racing4us

    You have lots of company on eBay - search for "antique honeywell thermostats"

    The Art Deco one you have - big round clock face with thermometer on top is most awesome.

    Good Luck
