Saw these two traps at an Estate Store. One is $35.00 and the other is $55.00.
Why would anyone buy these? You would have to be completely ignorant of traps to spend that kind of money.

Plenty of ignorant people out there, I guess. Ask Wanna Be Trapper. He's over on the covid thread right now telling everyone (especially southerners) how ignorant they are. whistle

Old traps. Or old traps that are rusty. OR just look rusty and old. Are being bought everywhere. Cracker Barrel managers at home. Have even called trappers look for them.

90 for the pair, take a 50 dollar offer and the buyer thinks they got a bargain.

I would take what have in there and ask if they would give me half. Maybe they would be foolish enough to buy.

E-Bay is full of similar deals. Lots of #2 Victor double longsprings being listed as bear traps!

An antique BEAR trap! And likely stolen.
