Splitcane is in the ballpark value.....some with better varnish might go for a little more. These were super cheap after war souvenirs brought home from GI’s. Most made decent tomato stakes....some were ok fly rods. Either a good display item or a good project rod. It will still catch fish! No wax or polish will work....it needs cleaning and several coats of varnish or I’d scrape it down to bare cane, seven coats of Tru Oil then wrap new guides and I use Threadmaster epoxy on the wraps. Any questions I’d be glad to help.
