Information on a vintage Ransomes Minor Lawnmower

Hello 

Ive acquired a old hand push mower by ransomes , I am going to list it on ebay but wanted some more information about it, as its a real nice looking item but also it still works fine and could be collectable. could any one help with dating the item or maybe helping me with a value. 

Any help would be appreciated 

Thank you

Hello

Hello

Welcome to the forum, looks like a good example with an original look to it. They were in production for over 20 years, I have them listed in 1911 & 1932 catalogues, I believe the solid sprocket may indicate a late model, as the early ones had an open one, but it could always be a replacement. Having a grass box is a bonus.

As to value, that is always difficult, location may impact, but if enough interested parties see it on ebay it will no doubt achieve its potential value!
