1981 Tom Ritchey mountain bike

I have a 1981 19" Ritchey mountain bike I might want to sell.
all original ,black metallic,nickel plated bull handle bars .no serial #,bi plane fork( flush ground top crown)
campagnolo drop outs.
Pointed seat lug. Saturn rims W/high flange sealed hubs (bolt on)
I believe this bike is a 1981 or could be 1980.

We'll need pics of the bike to judge the condition. High end mtbs tend to be undervalued but that it not the case with an early Tom Ritcheys; this is a piece of history.
