What is the current going rate for a Model M?

The last one I bought a couple of years ago and I paid $45, used but tested working. Bolt modded it and it's good as new.

I don't know what region he is from but i have seen working ones go for 50 Euro shipped. 50-70 for a working one would be the normal price from what i have seen.

IMHO, $50 is a good price for an unrestored, untested Model M, as long as:
  • It hasn't obviously been trashed, or there's some indication it can't be restored without considerable expense and/or trouble.
  • It includes shipping.
