I've got a couple dozen of these, good shape, strong springs. Dyed not rusty. Offset jaws.
What are they worth?

A fair price for both you and the buyer would be between $7 and $8 ea.

Yup. That's about right. Offset jaws, if factory, are a plus. Maybe worth an extra 50 cents.

Since they're offset make sure they aren't 3Ns. They won't say 3N but they'll have cast jaws and a cast swivel clevis with twist link chain if original. They're worth a bit more to trappers that like them.

Its a shame they are a heck of a trap if you have a soil condition or above ground cat trapping uses for them, worth a lot more if you cannot replace them for that price but that's what they go for would never sell mine for that.

I wish I could find dozen strong ones for that price. It's hard to find good ones. Bc my idea of strong springs is not the same as the next guys. And I dont want to fool with replacing springs. Old school Blake and lamb longs are the best and most sought after for use today.

They're factory offset. The jaws are not cast.
Thanks for the info guys.
