Wow. Like I said anything can happen with a very rare gun when someone really wants it.
BTW airguns in general were going for way higher prices 10-15 years ago than they are today. We are in the middle of what they call a soft market on airguns. Good for buyers....not so good for sellers. 
I see you have her up on Gunbroker. I hope you get top dollar for her. :)
All I'm for is the liberty of the individual.

Interesting I couldn't find any recent sale numbers but the lowest sale at auction with a stock that was broken a brazed I think went for $2200. And the only one I see for sale online has a buy it now for $3500 and is missing all the nickel plating.

Hard to gauge the market on very rare guns. In it's condition, if it was rebuilt, I'd guess $1000-1500.
 High end if someone really needs it. Low if someone is rounding out their collection and can't find any better examples. The tarnish isn't the only corrosion on the piece and the insides won't be original. Original parts mean alot to a collector. And someone who knows what they are doing, will check. 
All I'm for is the liberty of the individual.

So what would be its value if it was cleaned and in working condition? The greenish tarnish I was told would wipe off very easily since the nickel plating is still there and the tarnish is on top of that.

So what if it was complete and working what would you say its value would be?

Cost for a complete rebuild on a very rare gun is hard to guess at. Your gun is also missing the front sight and has a large dent on the right side. I'd guestimate it's condition at less than 20% due to the fact that it is missing so much and it's got considerable oxidation. If it were mine, I'd be happy to get $500-600 for it. That said it's very cool and I love the back story. Good luck with it.
