What's a good price to pay if this is original?

I wouldn't say it looks good, but it looks correct.

by the looks of it its an early 1956 model in barely acceptable , but fully original, condition

a very good price would be 2000-2500
a normal price would be 3000-4000
anything above 4500 I would consider too much

but maybe I am out of touch with my prices ?

Just out of interest, I have seen a number of Navitimer where the slide rule has turned green. What is the usual cause for this? Looks almost like moss or mildew.

Moisture reacting with the metal base of the sliderule. The case is not watertight so that perimeter is the point of contact with the air. It's not moss...

Thanks. So it’s a form of verdigris?

How much does the 799 with a case back usually sell for?

impossible to say , they are far too rare to get a pricepoint
