Value for a Fisher Everest 84 (and any other info too!)

My uncle is looking to sell off his Gary Fisher Everest 84 that he purchased directly from Gary Fisher's Shop. He dealt directly with him as he was figuring out what bike he fit him well. He still has all the paper work including the original receipts that has notes from his conversations with Gary Fisher. I tried looking this model up on BikeBlueBook but it's not there so I'm not sure of the value. My uncle unfortunately never rode this bike so it's still in pristine shape, except for some dust. The original price with taxes was $1702.17. I'm guessing maybe a collector might be interested? Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Filet brazed early Fisher with documentation? A lot.

Check the serial number. Does it say TET or something like that?

Only numbers I can find on the frame are #2002, also that number is on the invoice, "Everest, 22", pewter gray, #2002"

No other labeling on the frame, just on the components.

Nice bike, that's about the time Fisher started on his own. If Ritchey built it, and it has the original fork and handlebars , (which it look it does)...I would guess somewhere between $2,000-$3000+-. However, that's based on ritchey Everest models. Fisher badged bikes seem to get a little less. Pretty rare bike, an early mountain bike collector would like this one! Best beat is to sell it on a ebay auction.(would have to be listed right) Just do your homework and find out who built it. A Ritchey sells more than Teesdale's(think I spelled his name right) For reference, I sold a mint, original 83 Ritchey Everest for $4,000 to a collector a couple years ago. I'm not a Fisher expert though...someone else may have better info on that model.

Exactly why I asked about 'TET'!! Lack of initials TET suggests it may be a Tom Ritchey brazed frame.

Thanks!

A buddy of mine grew up with Fisher and the gang in Marin, he recommended the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame that just opened last year. Your info puts me on the right track. Thank you.
