Crazy prices for anniversary tip ups on ebay. Normally 45th selling for around $300. Last night 1 sold for $670. Lake-link  fishing contest 1 went for $395. 50th for $175. 40th at $255 now. Good time to make some extra cash if you need it.

It's metal. But the whole tipup shows many years of wear as I have used it for 50 years. Everything is original on it and I never rermember greasing it but it still spins like a top.

Does it have a metal tag around the flag post or a sticker? If its metal, it increases the value greatly.

I have a Beaver Dam tipup where the original wood color is an OD (Olive Drab) green. My brother bought it new in either the 50's or 60's. Any info on that color?

Speaking of standard boxes, the price for Beaver Dams was great!  Hard to see the sale price here but it was $11.24

I wish I had one of the earliest ones that were dipped.  Mine's new too but the box doesn't have the cool sticker, just the standard box.  When you use a spotlight to check for the reflector patch on the flag, it charges up again.

That's a really cool tipup! Not sure it would help snowmobiles from running it over still, but at least you could see it while walking over to it!  Wonder how long the glow lasts in the dark or if you have to charge it with a flash light every so often?

That one will have some value. I'm just guessing but I'm sure it will bring over a $100. Would not surprise me if it went over $150.

I bought this tip up years ago and never used it. I was wondering if anyone could give me a ball park amount as to what it might be worth. I can't find it anywhere on the internet. Thanks

I had to use the D abbreviations due to "Foul" laguage.

Anyone that collects Beaver D would be my guess. The less that it was made increases the value significantly. It's the same for vintage lures with color. Get one that wasn't produced much, and the value goes through the roof! What I would really like to know was the engraving done by Beaver D or did LL have a second party do it. It was probably Beaver D that did it making it original. I see that D Smith bait customizes tip ups and those seem to always bring a good value on Ebay. They just made a 40th anniversary for the bait shop. I wish I had gotten one. I'm just guessing here Fish, but that thing could be worth a surprising amount.  

One on EBay Now  

Already over $200.

Besides Lake-Link users, who else would be interested in a special edition Lake-Link Beaver Dam tipup?  I won it at one of the ice fishing outings they used to have.  Special meaning to me, because it was held on my birthday, so my birthday is engraved on the tipup....pretty cool I think!  I've never used it, I just take it out of the box to look at it once in a while. :-)

That's a good price for a 25th. I did sell my 30th on ebay. Just need that 1 buyer that wants it. Idk if wonder bread will be a hot 1. I always liked the camo version. Don't see them for sale often.

I’m not sure. I bought one lol. It’s definitely crazy. I don’t think they will be like anniversaries or those metal embossed boards. 


Surf, 

On eBay right now a mint 25yr with the box’s is up to $81. Condition is really important on value maybe could have gotten more on eBay? 

25 Year

I wonder how much the Wonder Bread ones will be worth once this craze is over in a few more years?  Will a lot of people hang on to those, or will the become collectible?
