Does anyone subscribe to worthpoint to research selling prices.  I haven't used it and was wondering if it's worth the money to use

As if ebay prices aren't bad enough sometimes, other websites can be even more outrageous. Why pay when searching ebay is free, and more people list items there?
Besides value is what YOU see in an item, not what someone else is willing to pay for it.
But maybe the more important question is, why not just ask here? After all, you are a WAGS member. There are some really good opinions around here.

Hello Russell. Perhaps if we charged Farold five dollars for  each question asked about the value of a piece he would like us better.  ::) ;D

Farold I always give advice to our membership when I have something that I think is worth sharing. But, the cost of the advice is you have to listen to a little BS too.  ;D ;D

I did a free trial with Worthpoint.

IMO, it's a pretty neat service, but for the average collector, it certainly isn't worth the price of admission. Even as a seller of iron, I don't subscribe.

As others have noted, if you ask around these parts, you'll generally get some pricing opinions although they can vary widely from time to time.
