Recently inherited a single sheet (200) stamps of Scott #740 with original gum never hinged. Is this worth any value in current form?

Timothy Dalton,

From the photo, the sheet appears to be imperforate, making the stamp Scott number 756.  The latest Brookman stamp catalog values the sheet of 200 at $80, but be aware that Brookman is generally thought by the stamp community to be over-priced when compared to actual market values.
