Does anyone know the current value for one of these things? Box is in good condition - no dents or rust. Original green paint and markings intact.

Thanks for the information. Not sure if box is for sale or not - it belongs to another party who was curious about it's value.

Thanks again,

Greg Fox

I got one on Ebay around a year ago for $50.00 - I have seen some pay up to $150. ???? Like other thompson items it depends on how much you are willing to pay.

I bought one at the SAR show before last, (2003) for $100. It was a really nice one with no dings and all original paint work. Last year a guy had one there which was obviously a repaint and he wanted $200.

I remember being outbid on a couple on evilbay - they went for around $160 - $180.

Remember, as I believe it was PhilOhio who said when you win something on evilbay you just agreed to pay more than anyone else in the world would pay..... so I would put those prices in as a high end. Doesn't surprise me to see them around $50 - $100 at shows.

Anyone got one for sale....??? ph34r.gif
