Tin Sand Pails are a hot collectible, with many selling for many hundreds of dollars, especially those in excellent condition.
It's also important to note that in the case of online auctions, such as the ones below, prices can give an idea of values, but it's not unusual to find the same item selling in wide price ranges. A lot depends on description, pictures, time of auction and a bit of luck! A bidding war never hurts, in that case it's no-holds barred on the prices.
