What about reasonable prices to expect

Don’t listen about people who will try to convince you that you cannot find an excellent HP-71B with a card reader under $479 or a HP-55 below $389. They are either resellers who bought their products like you on eBay at a decent price who try to resell it to you without any value added for triple the price or people who gives too much importance to this activity around HP calculators. HP calculators are a great hobby but it is not all we have in life!

Believe me; I just got recently on a market an excellent condition HP-11C for 2 euros. Of course I was lucky but what about a HP-42S for $45 or a HP-10 for $30? The secret is: Be patient and you will enjoy how it is fun to win a very nice HP calculator at a reasonable price on eBay.

You will find here the prices to expect for most common HP calculators models. Of course, those prices are not to be taken “written in the marble” and they can be lower or higher depending on what is included. Those prices consider an excellent condition and perfectly working product sold with its pouch, its owner’s manual and the battery and the charger if existing.

Have fun!
