This cooler has been in my family since I was a little girl. We used to use it to go camping. It's been around a looooongg time. Our family inherited the cooler many years ago when my dad was cleaning out his own garage & probably got a newer Coleman Cooler.
I looked online to see what this little gem would be worth nowadays.
First of all a brand new 'steel belted' 54-quart Coleman Cooler is $219 on the Coleman website! Wow! Here's a picture of what that looks like:
Next I went to Ebay where I searched for a similar cooler to our 'throwaway' version. I finally found one under 'vintage' Coleman coolers. Bids starting at $9.99. Wow.
