Used to be you could get them for less then a buck but those days are sadly long gone

I blame eBay


About 10 years ago or so, the company I work for had to clear a site for a new Dollar General. On the site previously was an old 5&10 Ben Franklin store. There were 6 semi trailers full of old stuff, brand new. You name it. The excavation guys pick through it first and there were brand new metal lunchboxes. Batman, spiderman, you name it.

My friends Beatles lunch box that I stomped on and smashed in about 1965; it would probably be worth a few dollars today.
