American Radiator antique Italian Flue hot water radiator

Rachel_2 Member Posts: 1
Two twelve-fin antique Italian Flue hot water radiators of mine have been damaged (cracked) by a sandblasting company (presumably they dropped them while refinishing them). Does anyone know of an expert who might be able to repair them? How much are these radiators worth since they are antiques? Does anyone know where I can find replacements?

    I know that if you were to buy such from a restoration companies' stock refinished you would pay somewhere to the tune of $100 - $150 a section or more.

    If they're cracked and assembled with screwed nipples, the unfortunate truth is that they're worth nothing more than their scrap iron value.

    If they are assembled with smooth nipples--you'll see small rods running across them with nuts at both ends--they can possibly be repaired, but unless you find a nearly desparate buyer for your exact model of radiator you're still unlikely to get more than their scrap value.
