In the US, if the gun has been registered with the BATFE, making it transferrable among private citizens, depending on condition, value can range between $2000 and about $8000. If it has not already been registered, it cannot be. It would then be highly illegal to possess, and have no value- other than 10 years in a Federal prison and a fine of $10,000.
