Im looking to pick up a bear trap to be used as a wall hangar. Not looking to collect, just need one. Is there a certain one i could look for that wont break the bank. I see ebay has many, but i wouldnt know if i was getting ripped or not.
Thanks

If you are just looking for a wall hanger bear trap, there are several reproductions available that will look authentic but won't break the bank.

Duke has a couple. Another option are traps by Jim River Supplies of South Dakota, under $400.00

Many dealers carry these options.

The traps wissmiss suggested are all inexpensive and great looking traps. If you want to purchase an older authentic bear trap, I would suggest you look at the 415X traps made by Triumph about 100 years ago. They are also great looking, somewhat smaller than those mentioned above and authentic. A very nice specimen can be had for about 450.00.

A # 5 or # 15 Newhouse in really nice condition will set you back at least $750.00, maybe more. Unless of course you find one that the seller doesn't know what he has.

At least $750. What do they typically go for in todays market? I'm interested in picking one up as well and want a fair price.

I know you mentioned $750 but the reason I ask is I saw where a #15 sold for $1,500 at auction. I see several offered for sale in the $1,000-$1,500 range.
