Answer
Hi Jim,

First I would like to say that I am not the expert on this site for old rods.  Do a final check with Rich MaGaughey or Joe Douglas.  

That said, I know these old Fenglass are very sought after.  A 10 weight like this is even more rare.  I would conservatively say $300 with the possibility of $400 or $500.

Good luck,

Marc
