|Is this HP16C worth worth a new 49G+?|

Sorry if this should be in the adds section - but I have no idea if I am asking for a reasonable price.
I have a battered HP16c which I never use, and I'd like to know if its worth anything.
Some photos are at http://alpage.ath.cx/hp16c/
As far as I can tell, it works perfectly. It looks like its been in the wars though - the badge is missing, there is an 'M' and a star shape scratched into the metal near the screen, and paint is coming off in 2 places (between the OCT and BIN keys, and between the 2 and 3 keys). The keys seem to be fine. The back is in good condition - I took a photograph but it didn't turn out. I will take more later.
It was made in the USA, serial number 2741A12807.
It includes the manual, in fair condition (Some ink stains, the cover is a bit creased and it is a litle dog-eared).
Is this calculator worth anything? Would anyone be willing to trade it for a 49G+ with the good keyboard? If its not worth that much, I could include a little currency - but I can't afford too much.
The ideal situation for me would be to send the calculator plus some cash if necessary overseas, and the buyer would send payment to www.hpcalc.org . www.hpcalc.org would then send me a new 49G+.
Am I being reasonable?
