Does anyone know how much my original town plan is worth?

    Well, I think we need to know a lot about your set. For instance, what kind of condition is it in? It is complete or incomplete? Are the bricks warped? Do you have the box and what shape is it in? And what about any paper work? Do you have any pictures? Because a picture is worth a 1,000 words.

    Here are some pictures. The box is in fair condition. The bricks are in excellent condition and are not warped. I am pretty sure that all the bricks are here, but I do not have the booklet to verify.

    I've seen some sealed, old town sets go for a good amount but they were in great condition. Many of the old sets are worth anything compared to the newer themes b/c of popularity and overall design but I like them

    First this is set 725, not 700/1 and it's from 1961. I can tell from the third photo this set is nowhere near complete. There's a number of parts that are likely not original to this set. These included most of the 10x20 base plates, the blue and yellow elements, the small clear car garages and the wheel elements. You take those away the box looks a little empty. I can see the trucks and Esso pumps, but not the VW bugs, Esso sign, street lamp, trees or name beams. The VW bug can be worth a lot if they are in good shape.

    The box is ok. The top looks like it has some major shelve wear and the edges are worn. The interior also has some major wear. It looks like all of the inserts are missing. The board looks to be in good shape.

    As for what's worth, I say you could $75 to $100 from the right buyer. Based on the photos and your info I wouldn't pay more the $50. Some better photos that high light the rare elements and show the damage clearly would go a long ways to getting a higher price in my opinion.
