Default Lyon and Healy 1800s marching snare

I've got a late1800s Lyon and Healy marching snare. (see date on label)
5.5" X 16" (without removing the head) - 10 lugs, gut snares. It's wood and metal construction. A vintage lug key is included.
The bottom head is heavily ripped, the top head has tiny hole, some of the gut snares are separated. I need to sell this drum either through here or on eBay, (it will be a great restoration project!) I was wondering what it might be worth and any other info or resources. I have more photos also. Please contact me if you are interested.

to the forum
I have a few of them from Lyon & Healey, Duplex, John Haynes and Oliver Ditson.
I paid between $120 - 145 for each of them based on their condition which was about the same as yours. This one as you noted needs new heads, the tensioner is bent. IMHO I would say $125

The snares aren't gut, they are cord...
