I have recently inherited quite a few beer steins. I’ve been able to identify some and others not so easily. Some show values between $100 -$200. My question is where would be the best place to sell beer steins?

It depends on what kind of beer steins you have. If we knew that we could help you better.
Here are some websites to help you:

Is your stein new or old?
SCI Reading Room “Library”:
Beer Stein Library:

There are also two auction houses that specializes in beer steins:

Thank you so much. I’ve reached out to The Stein Auction Company so we’ll see what they say.
I just have too many to list somewhere individually and since this is all new to me hopefully this will work.
You mentioned knowing what kinds I have. I have identified Mettlach, Marzi and Remy, Thewalt, Girmscheid, Regimental steins and character steins and mugs. There are others still to be identified.

You might be able to sell some to local collectors. Where are you located? Look at the Chapters list and see if there’s a chapter nearby.
