These card catalogs are made of hardwoods and the construction is high quality. The integrity of all three is solid. The age of these card catalogs is unknown. We believe they were built in the 1970's or earlier. 72-drawer card catalogs do not appear on E-bay very often. But recently a 30-drawer catalog had 14 bids and the highest bid was $289. A 72-drawer catalog has 5 bids and the highest bid was $331. Add shipping costs, and the final price for these two catalogs would be in the $350-400 range.
You are invited to view the catalogs. They are located on the 2nd floor (Main entrance) of the library near the SW stairwell.
