Here's a Daisy model 74 listing (they sell new for ~ $40, I bought a referb for $22)
 
TLDR- $170 delivered, gun's used.

I just purchased about a 7 copper band, for $200. I seldom buy Red Ryder bb guns. The guy is dreaming.

I sold my copper banded RR in 80% condition for $375 two years ago. It was as nice as any I have seen. I felt it was a fair price. 
Ebay is a wild card player for sure. 
All I'm for is the liberty of the individual.

Just noticed the same seller the fuse mentioned in the OP is selling a copper Red Ryder for $2K. I sold one almost as nice recently, but I can tell you I didn't get anywhere near that for mine! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Red-Ryder-BB-Gun-1st-Model-1940-Cooper-Bands-Great-Shooter-Tested/223389747626?hash=item34031109aa:g:9KMAAOSwE1tcZIoq:rk:4:pf:0

I saw this the other day myself. My personal opinion, at that price, is yes. Not saying it isn’t nice but the price is WAY off for a reconditioned, incorrect sling & bayonet. At least he was honest about the bayonet in the description.

You're right, it was a 141.

Yes, a big difference between the 140 and 141/142 in looks and rarity.
The 140 had a 'bolt' like a bolt action rifle that served as a safety.
It may have ben the first safety on a Daisy BB gun.
The forearm also went almost to the muzzle like the model 40 but it was a two piece stock.
I think it was the first model to use the 'wide' frame.
