Chrome folding bike. What is it? What is the value?

I just picked up this chrome folder and I am wondering what is it? There are no markings as to brand nor model.

I need to try and identify this so I know the value?

Any help would be appreciated!

Looks like a typical cheap, Chinese folding bike. My guess at value... $50. I mean, you can buy a new cheap, Chinese folder for less than $200.

This is not meant to be disparaging for Chinese folding bikes. Some are quite nice... this isn't an example of one of those.

Well firstly it's not chrome it's silver... chrome suggests electroplating and this isn't the result. Aside from that this bike doesn't have a folding handlebar stem, uses a BMX style handlebar and employs a stamped steel brake caliper at the front (I would assume at the rear as well then). These traits alone are indicative of a very inexpensive folding bike normally sold under a brand name few people, if any, have ever heard of.
