Craftsman 536.82125 collectability? rarity?

I believe this Craftsman snowblower is a circa (?) 1961 or so. 18", self propelled steel wheels, bread box engine cover/heater
Has anyone ever seen one before or have a rough idea of it's collectability?
I want to pick it up but have to justify it to the BOSS.
Thank you,
Bob

The steel wheels means it will slip on the snow packed ground plus it has a rather small engine on it. I would pass myself. I would much rather find a nice 1970's to early 1980's Ariens 26 inch 2 stage with a differential over this any day. As to how much it is worth the "value is determined by the buyer". It is really old and has a much older less practical design than the 1970's and later machines.

It is a machine of intrigue and sentimentality, rather than practicality. It is historical though.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.
