Year and a half ago, I paid $85. Turns out they were too big for the project I had in mind. I sold them to Zeke and purchased some smaller ones You've seen the 1 and 2 gallon ones I use now. The 3 gallon cornies seem to be the most expensive ones. Go larger or smaller, and the price seems to drop.

I have paid $95 including shipping from ebay. I got some 2 1/2-gallon cornies a bit cheaper, though the guy claimed they were 3-gallon. Be careful! there are a lot of people out there selling stuff they don't know anything about. I had to buy new beer-out posts for the 2 1/2-gallon cornies, so they ended up costing almost as much as the three-gallon ones by the time I was through.
And one of my 3-gallons developed a hairline crack shortly after I bought it. You might want to consider buying a new one. The price difference isn't that big.
