I have a vintage amp that I don't know anything about and was wondering if you could help me out a little.

I found it in my great grandmothers shed a wile back, it's a sears silvertone, it works fine and I've been using it for a wile but if its worth somthing I'd like to sell it so I can have money to work on fixing up my bass.

Here's the stuff on the back of the amp:

Model 1483 amplifier sears, roebuck and co.

117V 60C 105W 95A

I don't know much about amps so any help is great.

Silvertone amps aren't worth that much, but they are great player amps though.

They arent really worth THAT much, but they have been going up in value. You used to be able to get a mint one for around 100 bucks but now you can pay up to 700 or 800 for some. Especially the ones Jack White uses.

Would I be able to sell it to someone who wants it and buy one of equal or more watts with the money?

I like it but if there are people out there that really want it then I'd like to make them happy and keep my self happy too, I care more about my tone then about how old the amp is :/.
