I have flown flag presentations for STS-1 through STS-4 inclusive (I have two for STS-2) and wanted to know what is a reasonable price that I could sell them for? I am thinking about selling them and curious about going prices for the items.

Based on examples sold on eBay in the last year or two:
  • STS-1 : $462 to $813 (typically $500-700)
  • STS-2 : $150 to $1000 (typically $300-500)
  • STS-3 : $300 to $415
  • STS-4 : $240 to $510
Generally these flags (especially STS-1) are expected to show some glue staining but the more extreme it is the lower the resale value.

Also, although it might seem irrelevant, a strikingly odd name on the certificate may well lower the value of a flown flag.

All times are CT (US)
