    Default in need of some help

    I have a old English Packwood str8 razor with coffin box that it came in
    The only info I can find on it is from this site
    I'm trying to figure out how much it's worth it's from the late 1700's to 1890's
    It's in real good shape no pits no rust or anything I can send pictures if needed
    Can someone please help me out with this

    There is no evaluations allowed on the open forum.
    The most simple solution is to look though sold listings on eBay and compare them to your razors. Condition is everything.
    It's not what you know, it's who you take fishing!

    As RezDog has said valuations are against forum rules. On top of that these things change in value all the time and in reality they are only worth what someone is happy to pay. That varies depending on current trends and condition. The people here really want something serviceable that they can shave with whereas a collector may not be so concerned about such things. Ebay comparisons really are the best way forward.
    Fact: Opinions are not the same as facts... Well, that's my opinion anyway

    Definitely post some pics... Knowing an evaluation of condition is the first step to determining value in general. No monetary evaluations like everyone has said but the info gained in comments can lead you directly to the information you seek.

    First rule... ANY price/number you see on a straight razor in an Antique Shop or similar is simply heinous amounts of complete bs and should be met with a hearty laugh or a soft chuckle.

    Best of luck and welcome to SRP!!
