What could be a price for this clarinet?

#1
Gonna put it on Ebay. Could anybody express some opinion what could be the price for this clarinet? It is made in Czechoslovakia. Year unknown. It is Eb.

cool, an Amati Eefer. Check past auctions and see what they fetched. I faintly remember the plastic Bundies went for ~$250, while wooden ones in good condition can fetch $500+.

That is somewhat irrelevant as long as a potential buyer knows nothing about the state for the instrument, how's the wood, does it look neglected or well cared for, are the pads shot or new...

Edit: checked the pictures again, it's a Lignatone, still made by Amati or Kohlert. And its state is less than stellar so it needs an overhaul. $300, tops as is.

And cracks. On an Eb horn, a micro crack can be all it takes to leak as a erzatz register key.

EDIT:

There's a big 'un by the register key. Make sure to take photos of the tenon on that end of the horn, as well as a better one of the crack itself. You don't want to make a sale, only to have to pick up shipping back to you from an unsatisfied buyer.
