    Just saw one similar on TV show Auction Hunters. They sold it for around 500.00

    I'm unsure what Auction Hunters sold because a lot of these cameras look alike or they sold a complete outfit ... it's difficult to know and do a apples-to-apples comparison. However, I've owned and sold several extremely fine condition Bo Peeps over the years. This particular camera is in average-minus condition. Normal value for an excellent condition model is $120 - $180 (per a camera price guide); yet given the condition the value would probably be around $75 - $110 (or so). Then again, I've seen these sell for that lower price range.
