How much is the realistic price for a pair of used Jimny 3 headlamps in good condition?

They appear to hold their price, I assume due to the fact that they can crack with age. Average when I have looked is £60 ish each, so £100 -£120 for a pair.
As to condition it's difficult to say, seen lamps off a new model (less than 5 years old) and older, but the price does not appear to change much. Due to potential cracking I would aim for as new as possible, certainly less than 8 years old or as for a condition report. You may be happy to accept some cracking as it does not impact on performance, but it looks a mess.
New ( after market) are about £110 each.
I am sure if you hunt around you can find cheaper, but is a game of luck.

Good quality car bodywork polish is ideal for restoring Jimny headlamps! If you are selling a set this could get you a few quid more for them.
I used Autoglym resin polish on both my Jimnys, because the polish removes the oxidisation the small cracks arent so obvious.

Thank you for that fine elaboration.

I have a pair of those which I have never seen personally (a friend had bought them for me as replacements when mine were cloudy in my previous Jimny).

But circumstances have changed and I finally decided to sell them as I have no use for them.
