Hard to say. If it doesn’t have any broken pieces, probably worth $25. But the iron (blade) looks too short to have much useful life left in it. Also looks to be missing the tote (rear handle).

If that plane was here in the town where I am, I might be interested in it for the frog. I broke one trying to tighten up the lateral adjuster lever. : (

That’s a tough one with out seeing more. If you’re in an area where vintage planes are tough to find, make sure there are no cracks or chips in any part of the cast. You’ll need to decide what new or different blade to buy, and it may need a new knob and tote, but as a woodworker, that’s easy.

Make sure the tote bolt is just missing and not stripped.
