Burton PJ 5s Demo board....

Recently I acquired a burton pj board from the early 90's, I believe 1991. I'm not really looking to sell this board; I just wanted to know what it would be worth since I know pretty much nothing about this board in particular other than research on the interwebs.

As it stands, the board is a regular footed asym burton pj 5s with flex 3-strap bindings. The board has the word "DEMO" etched in to the top of the board underneath the leading metal edge. Now I have seen normal PJ's of similar quality go for 50-100 bucks; wasn't sure if because it was a demo board if that was something special.

I will be uploading pictures later today when I get home and clean up the metal edges a bit. Thank you for viewing. Once again; not looking to sell the board, just curious what I have here.

Pretty cool old board to hang on a wall.

With that said, it probably ain't worth shit. Pretty much the only "collectable" snowboards that I know of are the old Burton Backhills. They can fetch some pretty decent coin in good condition.

Alright man, I wasn't sure if because it was a demo board that made a difference. Clearly is may not haha. I might as well just keep it until winter and then ride it.

Thank you.
