1930's Minerva Archtop Guitar

Hey there. I bought this guitar years ago and am struggling to find out any real information on them or even a current value. Does any one Know anything about them. Any idea of price. Here are some link to the one i own. All in all it is in great shape and playes very well. one of the F-holed is a bit gouged at the bottom but other then that it is in good shape. there is a piece of paper under the tail piece to keep from slight rattle.

Your post is really old, but, look here for info:

I believe your guitar was made by Arthur Hansel (or Hensel). Arthur was based in Toronto from the 1930's until his passing in the early 1980's.
