Hello Everyone,

I have recently received a Kirby D50 from my grandparents, which belonged to my great grandparents.

I am far from an expert on the topic of vacuums and was just wondering if anyone here would know how much this vacuum may be worth today. Even general information about the vacuum would be appreciated.

As for the vacuum itself, it works just fine. It seems to me to be all original parts and it came with a few accessories. The only issue is the light bulb in the front needs to be replaced. I am adding two photos below. If you would like more just let me know and I would be happy to take them.

Thank you in advance,

IN non restored form, I don't think they are worth much to the public, a collector would be the only one interested. I saw two for sale for $35-50 that weren't selling. so...... its market demand...if someone is willing to pay. I would want one, but that cost plus shipping would put it too high for me for sure.

My friend had that cleaner. When she died, her sister offered it to me, for $40.00 !!! I'm NO Kirby expert, but, I think I was told it was from 1961. I'd never want to even TRY to expound on this, as I'm not a "Kirbylover". I'm told it was/is a great machine, though.

I have one in my collection and it came from the original owner who passed away.. she had the kirby diamond bag set up put on it. Hepa wasn’t around back then.
