I have some reclaimed pine center-match (tongue and groove) boards that came from an old house that I am renovating. We estimate the house was built in the 1940-1950 range. The longest boards are 10 ft in length. Does anyone know what this type of reclaimed wood material would sell for on average?

Almost nothing. You don’t have enough to recreate a great floor, and pine is good for firewood.

Well… I guess I should definitely sell it to a lady that offered to give me $160 for it.

Yes. Take the $ and run. As reclaimed wood pine has very little value. The local 2nd use materials store won’t even stock it.
