IH or Cole?
In my experience, the IH plates are harder to find, and therefore in my opinion, would command a higher price.
I would estimate $20-30 for IH plates, $10-15 for Cole, with variances depending on condition and "rarity".

I see big bucks being asked for IH plates. Not sure if there are buyers at $60, especially for the oddballs (O-Too-Tan-Soy.... :? )

Even an IH plate paper weight went for $93 on Ebay last week. Bob did you add this one to your collection?

I was just a watcher on that one. I figured it would be $100.

What are you growing?

With the seed plates...they seem to be a hot item for collectors of Americana folk art and "steam punk" industrial art. I like when the ebay listings say that the plates are obsolete and were used on horse drawn planters and are no longer used.
