Best Answer

A collector can pick up an old 800 in working condition for $3 to near-mint for $40.

More Information

This model was manufactured from 1957-1962.It originally retailed for $126, so it was quite high-end in its day.

Model 800 of the Land series featured a polished steel body with gray textured covering. There is a double-window viewfinder/rangefinder on top of the camera and a focus knob on the camera bed. An adjustable leather strap graces the side of the camera. Quite large in size: with the camera open and standing upright, it measures approximately 5 3/4"w by 10"h by 7 1/2"d. In the closed position, it measures approximately 10"w by 5 3/4"h by 2"d.

The film for this camera was discontinued in 1992, but some people have experimented with converting the old 800s for use with standard 120 roll film (also becoming expensive) with acceptable results. Most of these cameras remain unsold at auction.

Polaroid has not released serial number information for most of their cameras, so it would be helpful if you specified a model. If the serial number corresponds with a Polaroid Model 80 Highlander (as it appears it may), the camera was made sometime between 1957 and 1962, possibly in the late 1950s.
