Hi, I am new here and do not really know much about chess but a set was passed down to me from my grandfather and would like to sell it.
From what he told me it was bought by a US soldier in Taiwan during the Vietnam war at a second hand store and then he bought it from that soldier at an army base back in the US. The set is likely early to mid 1900s but I do not know much about it other than it is ivory.
The set is not in perfect condition, but it is in good condition. If you would like pictures of the set I can send them via text, my number is 832-922-2899.
Anyone intersted please let me know! I would perfer to sell locally because the pieces are very delicate and I would not trust the mailing service to take good care of it.
I won't give you my #, you can post pics here.
If you would be kind enough to tell me how to do that I would be more than happy to!
@JBrady- Do you see the icon for "Insert image" next to the "B I | A" edit tools on the toolbar? I'd start there if you were serious about selling your set here. Otherwise, maybe Craiglist would be more convenient (ie, local) for you. Good luck.
That's ironic because I did post it on craigslist. That posting does have pictures and can be seen here: https://post.craigslist.org/u/0PQAN0YF4xGxfMt-5WXVVw/rftkf
I will work on uploading some here as well.
Does anyone know of a good place or way to get this set appraised or a good place to sell it?
