What's a Brick Worth?

We get lots of inquiries as to what bricks are worth. The value of a brick is relative. A collector may be looking for a particular brick or someone may want a brick that has their name on it, just for fun. But most collectors prefer just to trade, not buy. Join IBCA and go to their Brick Swaps or try putting your finds on EBay or Craigs List - you never know. (Click on "Comments" for more information.)

Here are some inquiries we've received regarding how much bricks are worth:


    1. I HAVE AT LEAST 600 DRURY BRICKS FROM A CATHOLIC CHURCH IN WINOOSKI VT.
      HOW CAN I SELL THEM AND FOR HOW MUCH.

      I have access to thousands of bricks being torn up from the streets of a city in Northeast Washington State. They would be cleaned and no chips or cracks. Dated around the turn of the century. Any idea what they might be worth, or if it's even worth messing with?????????????
      Thank You.

    1. I have a large amount of red brick with Harris Paver stamp on them. Are they worth anything?
    1. From my basic understanding. The brick market is mostly entertained by collectors willing to share or exchange bricks.

      The value of the bricks is more personal to the discoverer. This might be a good time to save some of those bricks and start your own collection by joining this and many other communities.

      If you do not have a collector's website to go to.

      Sure, people may want to buy your bricks but you will need to leave it open to the market. Perhaps E-bay will give you an idea of the value when you place it there and see how the bids go.

      Another place is Craig's List

      Before removing a building or road, you might contact a historic preservation society that may want to document or rebuild the structure. This might bring value to you as you can enjoy the structure or knowledge of the complete value of the structure in a historic sense rather than at a brick at a time.

      I am starting my brick collection and copying historic information of the manufacturer and owners. The brick in a box along with it's historic value makes a good conversation piece and brings more meaning to our culture.

      The brick value $1 the historic value "priceless".

      Enjoy your discovery

      We have recently purchased a home built in 1958 and have found several dozen bricks around the property. They are marked "TERRY" and "P&M". Is it possible they could have any value? Thank you.
