I got mine for $20. I frequently see them at flea markets in the 20 to 30 range. If you add in a battery adapter from Yashica-Guy.com for $15., I'm sure you can get a good one for less than $50 total.
Be careful though, if the battery is dead, you can't test it and the electronics might be shot. If you tell that to the guy at the flea market he might let you have it for $5.00.

The battery adapter can simply be a wad of tin foil. I know.

I'll post a WTB post here....Hopefully, someone has a Yashica Electro 35 GSN for me in great condition.....

I have had about 10 of the Yashica Gsn, Gt, Gtn, etc...
All have needed work like seals, lube, rangefinder cleaning,
battery corrosion problems and there is a small "pad" in the
camera that goes bad too. They can be found in this condition
for $20 or so but I have never seen one that did not need some
work so allow a budget for that. They do shoot well.

If it does not work out with greyhoundman, i have two GSN's which is exactly one too many.
One cost me 30$, the other one about 10$... (that's why i have the second one...i'm a sucker for good deals)

As Gene said, battery adapter should not cost 15$...especially since it's only a physical (size) adapter, the voltage does not matter.

They are really great little (big) cameras.

My battery adapter is a bent paper clip.

I had a battery adapter that was a copper spring from an old torch-light. Work pretty well.

My battery adapter is a 2 cm long screw in a plastic pipe.
