There are some 24-28mm f2s going cheap, tho not perfect condition
The 24/2 sells for $300-500 here, the 24/2.8 on the other hand can easily be found for under $150, maybe that's what you're thinking of.

The Zuiko F2 primes, such as 21/2, 24/2 35/2, 50/2 macro, 85/2, and 100/2 all are quite expensive, but there are 2.8/3.5 versions of all of these for much more reasonable prices (except the 85/2). These lenses are very good, very small for their type/size, as well as pretty uncommon, all of which factors into the market value.

There are some (at least in the UK) 24 and 28s going cheap, although admittedly looking at the ebay listings more carefully they're either not in perfect cosmetic condition or have hazed a bit (cleanable?)

Good condition Zuiko F2 lenses are going for £150-£300.
