how to price an excelsior 5x8 handpress model U

i am making an offer on a friend’s collection of handpress (excelsior-5x8-model u) - 7 small adequately furnished cases of type and attendant wood furniture and accessories.

the only thing missing are the rollers, though i have the trunnions. the ink table has some surface rust, otherwise all is in excellent condition. type not worn. platen strong. press clean and well kept.

any ideas on how much this set would fetch approximately. much appreciated.

I’d say somewhere from $400 to $800.
