Old CBs

Anyone tell me if there is any kind of market for old CBs? I got handed down to me 2 old midland 23 channel CB radios and I'm just wondering if there are collectors out there that would appreciate these or if I should just hold on to them.

One is a Midland 13-852, the other is a Midland 13-857. Dated 1975, 1976 manufacture respectively

Re: Old CBs

I was thinking about the same thing. I have an old 23 channel Pace 2300 sitting in the garage......

I was wrong once too, but then I found out I was mistaken!!!

23 channel radios are all crystal controlled. (non PLL) They just don't bring any price at all UNLESS you find a collector that loves them. I have seen them all over at yard sales for $5.

I would totally use a tablet bracket and mount that beside the radio. Just to be able to drive around talking on the handset.

LOL! 2 cans and a piece of string kept me and a friend busy for hours. But then we played baseball with a rock and a stick.
