I hold several original patents in their original leather covers belonging to earnest George Scott. This one is the patent for The improvements in the manufacture of acetic acid dated 1897. No 12952. I was just hoping someone could help by telling me keep them or throw them. Or might a museum be interested. Thank you

While historic documents may have a collectible value, unfortunately it is not on topic on this site - which is about the patent process and currently active patents. –  Ron J. May 29 at 13:13

A museum might be interested but I'm not sure if they have much/any value. I'm sure they're worth a few dollars. If you're just going to throw them away, I'd be interested in them. I'm brand new here so I don't know if you can PM me, but if you can . . .
