Does anybody know what RPs are worth these days? I have an opportunity to buy some but am having a hard time finding any current info on them.

$149 retail on the set of 7 DMM brass offsets. Might be able to find the older HB versions for cheaper used though

If you're not aid climbing don't bother, just get the three largest and save a bunch https://www.backcountry.com/dmm-brass-offset-free-package?rr=t

I've only placed a #3 on a free route once, never placed the smallest ones. Wouldn't ever do more than body weight the smallest ones.

Thanks guys I'm talking about actual RPs though. Like the ones made by R.P. himself. Any idea on those?

If used depending on condition, $10 each.

Given that Roland Pauligk, the inventor and manufacturer of RP's, passed away about almost exactly one year ago, and no one has since stepped in to take over, RP's will only become increasingly rare.  With that in mind I don't see RP's going down until price until there is a revolution in the protection available for cracks of that size.

I reckon they'll be at least $10-$15 apiece for quite a while

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
