Handloader Magazine just mentioned in an article that the 45th Ed of Lymans handloading book is a classic worth several hundred dollars.
I went to Google and found that Amazon had a new one for $850 and several used from $123 - 450.
Then I looked further and found some on ebay and elsewhere for $5-15.
I have one in great condition and seldom use it. Could certainly use $200-300 dollars though.
What is the real deal on this....anyone know?

I have one and I don't really think it's worth a lot of money. Those you saw on Amazon asking for $850 are just that, asking for but not selling!

Put it on ebay for $200 and see what happens. Markets change like fashions, and nobody saw the 70s coming.

I've got the Lyman #49, which is 4 better. I'm only asking $150 for mine. I'll let you fight amongst yourselves for who gets it.

I've seen them on ebay for about $15.00 plus shipping... I was able to get one at my local library for FREE ;)

That is about the same opinion I arrived at.
Maybe the writer bought a bunch of used manuals, wrote the article, put his manuals on Amazon, and hoped to make enough money to buy himself a new reloading press?????The whole deal sounds really fishy.

My new one is falling apart.

My old #45 & #47 are still holding together just fine.

I'm gluing pages back in at the seam on my 4 year old #49 with Elmer's glue all the time!!

I bought Lyman #49 in Hard Cover when it was on sale. It seems to be holding up very well with no pages falling out. (yet)

My gosh, anything on eBay now pertaining to reloading is way overpriced. I guess if you have something and don't need it, now is a good time to list it. Presses that were going for $15- 20 are now over $120.
