23 years old MREs?!
Not as "valuable" as a case of MCIs. A case of "C-rations" could/will bring you (over here) ~€150-180.
On ebay, it could happen nobody will buy them as nobody want´s to eat 23 years old rations.
You can give it a try, but don´t be disappointed.

I see them on eBay now and then from 87. Shipping can always be a deal killer with heavy stuff like cases of MREs but I'd say they should definitely sell if you tried. As a buyer always looking for a good deal I'm hesitant to suggest prices lest I talk myself out of a deal or come across as trying to get a better deal than I should. Are you a collector yourself or just looking to get info for a one time sale? There is a part of the board here:DanielQ wrote:These are complete banded cases that were packed in April 1987.

where you could put them up for sale directly to the 600+ forum users mostly interested in collecting and ask for offers via PM. It might be a bit slower than an auction or it might be a lot faster if you get an offer you can work with early on.
I am by no means trying to get rich with these cases. Mainly I was wanting to know there value. I would prefer to get rid of them in a trade where I could get some current issue MRE's but due to shipping costs it may be not worth it.

Hey Daniel, list them on Ebay and start em out at $25 a case with $20 shipping on each case or something like that. I'll bet they will go up to at least $38-44.
What is the oldest thing you've ever eaten?
