That's interesting. I don't know about the value but I'd caution you against pluging it in and turning it on unless you are familiar with these old critters. If you've already done so that's ok but without being serviced they can easily smoke and that can lessen the value. If you do put it on ebay please post it in the "ebay" section here as someone here may want to bid (like me. I want it...just because it looks cool :) )

It's a neat looking amp but not a huge $$$ on the collectors market.

The M series from the late 50's is the more sought after of the Rickenbacker line which sell for an average of $300-400 in fully working condition.
other Rickenbacker models sell for less. most in the $150-$250 range. With a few crazy collectors asking $$$ so they can insure them, or in hopes of driving the value u. With that said, I'd estimate your amp in fully working condition ( restored to NOS condition ) valued at $350. in it's current as is condition, assuming it's transformers and speaker are still "good" and all parts are intact $250. If anything is missing or damaged.. probably less then the cost to ship because replacement parts are near impossible to find.
