Answer by Scott Stevenson
From what I've seen, it looks like it's got just under one ounce of silver in it, so at the very least, with today's silver price, it's got about worth of silver in it.
While researching, I saw one being advertised on eBay by a dealer for . I'd have to say that's pretty close to the market value. If you were to sell it to a dealer, you'd probably only get the "spot" price of the silver, which isn't an unreasonable spread--if the dealer doesn't turn a profit, he doesn't get to keep his lights on.
