What is my BF Princeton worth?

Hey all !

I see some outrageous prices on Fender BF amps so I'll lay this out and perhaps some of you level headed objective guru's can give me some insight as to it's value.

It's a 1964 BF Princeton Amp - original NOT a reissue and NOT a Reverb unit.

I received it in non-working condition and had to do some repairs.

It was missing the speaker --- Weber 10F150 installed with 18 gauge wire and original 1/4" connector

The Output Transformer was blown so I upgraded it to an Allen Amp Output Transformer.

The Power Supply Multi-Cap was replaced with like kind ( old showed signs of bulging)

The Cap and Diodes for the Bias were replaced.

4 Caps replaced in the Vibrato circuit because it was noisy.

PreAmp tubes were missing and replaced with J&J tubes.

The amp is missing only the pedal which almost no one ever has, Edit I did have both rear cover plates

The Tolex an Grill are both in fine shape an the amp sounds great and works as it should only now one doesn't have to worry about blowing the Output Trans because the Allen is an upgrade and Weber speaker(and no mods needed for the install).

So, sorry for the long intro but…..what do you think the Princeton is worth in terms of real dollars ? ? And NO, this is not a solicitation for someone to say " Oh man it's modded, it's only worth $200!" LOL

Thanks !
