Is there a way to figure out how old a Bible is? I have a family Bible but trying to see how old it is, is becoming difficult.

I was curious how much this bible is worth I have one just like it, but mine doesn't have the brass clasps keeping it shut. Please email me back and let me know I can send you pics if you would like.
