Unless Iím missing something a Herters bear trap is over $1400 on an online auction. To me that should be a few hundred dollar trap. Not sure how to link but if youíre interested itís McMullen Auctions out of Thief River Falls MN

There is also a few other traps on the auction.

That does seem a little high. They only thing I can find is they were made in the 1970's and in brand new condition show $600 -$650.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks it was high Thought maybe I was missing something

I was dropping some things off for the auction and one of the owners asked me what I thoughts were. I thought 5-700 but wouldn't surprise me if it would bring a grand.

Hammer price was 1760 plus ten percent buyers commission and sales tax.

Just went through the auction. Looks like now would be a good time to be a seller.

#2 Newhouse is going to sell for too much.

There are two rusty 110s that are up to 20 for the pair.

Auctions are a good place to sell most times but need to pay the sellers condition also.

Was just at a sale a couple of weeks ago. The same Herters Bear trap went for $1200. A #4 1\2 New house Went for $850. That one might have been worth that. Complete trap and chain with square rebar drag.
