Eddy Merckx vintage - value

Hi All

I would like to sell a bike on behalf of a friend. Her husband owned the bike and has passed away. The bike has not been used for a very long time.

I am told the bike is vintage and worth a lot more then your average bike.

Any help on the value of the bike would be appreciated.

I have attached some photos for review.

Please look on the seattube and try to find a decal that provides the tubing. A clear photo would be good. It probably says Columbus.

I see Chorus and what looks like a fairly clean merckx - likely early 90s. Rough price estimate on eBay would be $1,000 from a reasonably experienced seller. Deduct fees. Value on Craigslist depends on your location - pricier bikes are often harder to sell. At least $600-700 in most areas.
