    Thought I should ask the community before posting this item to the classified section.I purchased it locally from a retired photographer for $125.00.It's a real beauty.

    Thank You

    Check completed auctions on eBay. I don't think you will get anywhere close to $125, but that's just my opinion.

    Depend on condition and depend on which version of the Gralab 300 as they have changed over the years, you may be able to get the $125 back but it's going to be difficult.

    My recollection is that they sold new for around $100, so that price seems a bit steep.

    We have a photo flea market twice a year in our area. Gralab 300's typically sell for $20 - 40. Interestingly, the most recent sale was today, and there was essentially no darkroom equipment at all.

    I paid $5 for mine.

    I see them at photo shows for about the same as Monophoto mentions. A like new metal case goes for about $40. The later, slightly smaller plastic case version that won't rust may get $10 or $15 more.

    I bought a used one on Ebay for $29 with the metal case.

    I also bought a Gralab 900 for $29.

    I won a Gralab on ebay for 38.00. It is in excellent condition.
