Default 30/30 Lever Action value?!

I have a; Roebuck "JC Higgins" Model 45 Lever Action in 30/30 caliber with about 5 boxes of ammo. I've had it for 20 years and only shot it about 5 times, it's just sitting there...

It's in decent condition, no dings or damages that I know of or can see, it's just old and I know nothing about it, but I'm sure a gun enthusiast will be able to clean it up really good. I belonged to a buddy of mine's Grand father and he really wanted to get rid of it so bought it from him for $350 20 years ago...

I'm thinking about selling it to fund something else and want to know the value for it. Any help will be appreciated. (((I can't post pictures)))

No Trades, located in Collin County, TX.

I'm pretty sure that one is actually made by Marlin and while it probably won't bring a Marlin price it wouldn't surprise me if it gets real close.

Probably should just get on GunBroker and if you can't find the same gun you have listed sold or recently sold, look for a JM Marlin in about the same condition and see what they sold for. Lever actions are stupid high right now, but of course a lot depends on condition.

Also, double check that those are made by Marlin, I'm going off memory so I don't want to give you wrong information

Edit to add, I did some double checking and those do appear to be Marlins. Good luck with your sale

Thanks for all the messages. the interest has been overwhelming and since thereís a lot of interest I thought it would be fair to let my old buddy whom I bought it from know so he can have the first chance at it since it is his granddadís gun after all. I appreciate all the text messages and private messages and all the information, I had no idea there was that much interest. As soon as I hear from him and depending on his decision Iíll let yíall know.

Thanks!

Mine has some scuffs (not dents or scratches) on the stock that Iím sure some kind of solvent will clean and some normal wear & tear but nothing major. I have pics but canít post them.

Sold by Sears as JC Higgins Made by Marlin.
Just looked at a 1962 Model 45 on a website for $429.
Most buyers might want to know the serial number.
