Question Can someone help me determine the value of this board??

I am a stay at home mom and occasionally sell things to help supplement our income. I was given a Solomon Fr159 to sell. I can not find any information on this particular board. It's a blue board, black bottom. Has Burton Freestyle Bindings attached to it. The board is a largebody 400 LT. It has an Emerica graphic on one end of the board however this looks like it was applied after market. Can someone please help me out with this so I know what my target price will be? I appreciate any help.

I noticed that too which is why I started thinking maybe there is something special about it. You know never know what you have on your hands. I figured it was pretty old.

The bindings say 4x4 on them if that helps.

That board is ancient by today standards and other than being one of the first to have some kind of stone ground finish with structure isn't worth crap. 20 bucks is about all you can expect to get for it.

Wow. $20? Really? I'm not surprised that it's old because it just doesn't look very modern. It's in great shape though. Looks new. Thanks for your help.

While there's a market for vintage boards, the list of boards that garner any real money is a short and exclusive one.
