Mid 80s Mercier value

Info:
Mercier w/ crown logo on front forks
52cm steel frame (in need of new paint)
"le velo de mercier" is barely legible on the down tube, all other decals are missing, no numbers on the frame
Atax Stem
Handlebars stamped "Guidons Philippe Franco America 358"
Campagnolo Victory Group set, 10 speed (crank arm stamped "170 [11] 9/16" x 20F")
Mavic wheels (Module 3 Argent D)

Sorry I don't have any pics, but hopefully this will be enough for an estimate... I'm not really planning on selling it, I want to clean it up and use it, I just want to know how careful I should be while doing the restoration....don't want to screw up a good bike haha

i would say maybe 200.00. mercier made some good bikes dont know if yours is one but it think the better ones came with record group. the victory group is not very well liked. the frame tubing is important as well, could be good reynolds or cheaper. with no decals, it will be hard to tell. good luck with your new purchase
