Welcome Bart. I have heard of Lyman but I know just about nothing about them, except that I think it might be Lyman who makes an electric Surrey (With A Fringe On Top!) The only way to find out its value is to put it on ebay!

I've got one and know of exactly one other, but I wouldn't claim any special insight into value on that basis.  Mine is mostly complete but nonoperational and the other one is essentially museum-quality.

Well how does this one look? I've had it for 20 years plus and it runs like a fine tuned watch... Oh and one more thing , I have the original owner's manual...

TommyIphone recently contacted me to enquire into the price I had paid for my Lyman, as he was thinking of selling his.  One thing led to another and, well, here's a shot of what used to be his Lyman being loaded onto a truck today for shipment to my place:
