This tackle box in truth will sell for average on eBay for approximately $26-36. I buy and sell Umco boxes for fun and money, and have been for 2 years. I've seen recently where one guy called his Umco 1000A "Vintage and Extremely Rare", and then put $375.00 as his Buy It Now price. If they are so rare, why have I bought 4 of them for under $30 including S&H? The last one I bought, in very good condition, cost me $19.99 and $9.99 S&H. So the other answer you got, $235, IF it is good shape, and IF it has all 59 slots filled with vintage lures, was a fish story. Most people will fill an old tackle box with fairly new lures, many bought from China on eBay for under $1 apiece, add in a few "vintage" lures, which usually just means "old" (old does not mean rare or valuable), and then start the price at around $50, and will usually end up selling that whole thing for around $75-100. $235 would only be true if the lures were genuinely "vintage" and valuable lures made of wood, no plastic. Regardless of the lures,the box will still only be worth about $30.

The Umco Corporation, Spring Park, min-model 1000 is approximately worth $235. This is on an assumption that it is in good shape and contains a lot of plugs, lures and misc. You can sell it online at HTTP//WWW.eBay.com/sch/Tackle-Boxes-/22696/i.HTML?_n kw=um-co.
