Can anyone ID this grinder... if so, what would you pay for it?

I heard these old grinders with glass hoppers still intact can be worth a little...

Thanks for any feedback

Hi, looks like it could be a Macdobar Todaro grinder.In un-restored condition, i'd pay maybe 200 euro, i found a fully restored one for 900 euro, send me an e-mail if you'd like a link. Be aware that these old grinders are often 380 volt and the motors often need rewinding, which can be expensive/tricky

Hi kit2000 thanks for the valuable info. I often do pages of google image searches online but didn't have the energy last night... Looks like this one has new burrs and is fully functional. Chrome is a little mottled though... Just verifying with the owner if it's 380V or 220V...
