Help with PPK/S value, selling

I'm going to sell my W. German 1978 PPK/S .380 & need some help with the value as it's somewhat "beat up".
Blueing is worn around the muzzle & there's some pitting on the left side of the slide from being carried for 10+ years in a leather pocket holster. It's been engraved by the local PD (stolen) with date/case # when it was recovered & also one magazine is engraved. I have the original 2 magazines, 1 finger rest/1 flat & the original case it came in. Factory 20 lb. recoil spring & a spare 17 lb. Wolff. I had the decocker fixed.
The pistol functions fine with both hardball & HP ammo, the bore is bright, & it's accurate.
I have no more use for this pistol so I'm going to sell, I just have no idea what it's worth in this condition.
** No pictues, my camera is broken.
Thanks.

Sounds like $300 would be a fair price. It's what I paid for the same exact gun in what sounds like similar condition a couple of years ago.

For its condition, have you considered trying for a swap? You'll get wholesale, but it's better than nothing. Alternatively, put it on consignment.
Your gun is an object lesson in the perils of carrying a hard-to-replace pistol.

I'd start with consignment & higher price on display.
Someone will jump on it with the mind set of an old classic that been carried, but still an old original with PD history and collectors value.
Start at $500-$600. Someone will want it. Especially with all the mags and engravings.
Trading it will get you zip. They will sell it for a lot more.

A local PD engraved a stolen gun with case details on its recovery?
They must have thought it’s next stop was the smelter for whatever reason.

They will get will get a good price for it.
Someone will jump. It's in the clear with history.
Even bad bait will eventually catch a fish if it's on the line long enough.
Christ...I'm sounding like Mike now!

$300 sounds about right based on the description. Might look for sold comps on Gunbroker, but $450-500 will get you a nice version of this pistol, IMO.

Thanks for the feedback folks, appreciated.

It wasn't hard to replace 40 years ago, just 1 of a very few quality small pistols available for pocket carry.

The prices quoted are about what I paid for my 1980 Ulm PPK/S, which lets me carry it without fear of further damage (and long-term 'storage' by the PD if I ever have to use it).
