Yes, prices on ebay are between USD 150 to USD 250, mint, complete in box.
Ebay is the worst place to purchase items, though it's the only place I know where what you are looking for is available.
In addition, the prices on ebay are high because if you're looking for a specific item, there is only one or a few available, so you have no choice bidding on it, and the chance is high someone says "if this guy is bidding that much on it, it is certainly worth it, and I'll bid a few bucks more".
So should you intend to get a good price for it sell it on ebay, but make sure there are not many similar items available at the same moment.
I personnaly regret the ebay prices as it makes collecting less fun, people will reluctantly sell an item they don't use or have never understood how to use for a fair price to someone who has important interest in keeping and loving it !
The 42 s has a lot of fans, even if it is not connectable as the 41, its slim line and its 2 lines display makes it a great calc for daily use !
Have fun !
