How much is this Sturmey Archer AW worth? Pics.
I just went to an estate sale and bought a few boxes of bike parts and this Sturmey Archer Hub was in there. I have no interest in using it so I'm selling it on Ebay. I'd like to put a Buy it Now for a fair price so I can sell it quickly but the ones there now vary from $9 to $42 plus shipping for identical hubs so I have no idea what is fair for this.
The owner passed away so all I know is what I see since I don't know how to function test it. It is well lubricated. It came in a plastic bag that had oil in it that had dripped out fo the hub. I wiped it clean and it looks good. The oil is clean and new smelling. The sprocket feels pretty stiff when I spin it with my hands though. Normal? Maybe it needs adjustment?

Here are some pictures:
The hub pictures better than real life. It looks almost perfect if it weren't for the nuts but it does have a few tiny little specks of surface rust on it and three scratches about 1/8" long each. There are 18 holes per side.
The shifter moves fine but I don't know anything about them to judge its proper operation. The othe side of the shifter is chrome with little specks of rust.
The cable moves in and out of the hub by hand and the spring tension keeping it in feels strong.
These bands were in the bag with the hub but I have no idea if they are needed but the round one does have Sturmey Archer stamped on it and it has a little chip as you can see.
The lubrication port is in good condition.
