Can you do a picture? Roll tops are like most antiques. Alot of factors go into the price including current collecting fads, quality, condition, etc. -legrue edited to add, For any Colorado/mining history buffs, I saw Horace Tabor's desk for sale locally. It was something $20,000, and that was about 10 years ago.

Cactus, Email me a couple and I will give you them an eyeball. I'm not an expert, but I'm no stranger to an antique shop either. -legrue
