Ok, so I have someone interested in purchasing a vintage graflex clamp lever from me. The problem is I have no idea what to charge for it. Of course, I want to be fair but I don't want to get robbed either and it's in fairly good shape for a vintage lever. Would appreciate your insights, thanks!

I don’t think I’ve ever seen one for sale. I’ve seen red buttons sell for over $100. I seem to recall seeing entire clamps go for over $100 as well. The lever is a tough one. Check eBay and see what’s there for vintage parts. Graflex prices go up and down with demand. Around TFA Graflex were selling up around $1000. I haven’t checked lately but last I checked they were down around $5-600. I bought several between 2007-2014 and paid between $130-200 for very nice quality Graflex.
If you have a bunch of spare levers, maybe. if not, and you aren't building a bunch of V2's, then that leaves you with a problem. levers also tend to wear pretty quick, with some losing chrome off them. worst case, break the price up into thirds - the lever, the bars, the band - $50 for each?
