    I'm not expert, but machines like this can be found on CL or in thrift stores from $15-$50.

    The chair with the drawer under the seat, along with the matching cabinet, will make this machine more valuable than most. This type of machine in a ho-hum cabinet sells in thrift shops here for about $30-40. However, it's rare to have the chair that goes with it. That would probably bump the price up to $50-100 ($100 only if you find a collector who appreciates the value of the chair). If the cabinet and chair are elaborate, that also bumps up the price, and if they are in pristine condition, that also bumps up the price.

    Most of the time I sell these for around $85 or so after a full service and in a portable base. But if you have the cabinet, chair, and all of the accessories + being recently fully serviced and in mint condition then you can see one sell for around $145 to $150.

    Are there any sewing machine repair stores in your area - look in the yellow pages - they can probably give you an idea - also take some photos of the machine and cabinet before you go.
    Good luck
