Groupner OS - I .30 cu.in. Rotary engine

I have a .30 rotary engine by Groupner & O.S.. It is used but it's in very good cond. It's missing a couple of screws for the front housing,the 2 phillip head will be replaced w/socket head screws & the 2 opened holes get a nut & a bolt which will be installed before shipping. The 2 open holes are actually hollow dowels for aligning the cases. The manual shows a nut & bolt for that location so thats what it will get. I also have a copy of the manual for this engine. I do not have a box,muffler or a set price . Sorry I just dont know what they are worth so instead of putting up a ridiculous price ,I will let you guys decide what its worth.I opened the engine up to take a peak so I could give a honest description of the condition of this engine. It was very well lubed but it have dust around the outside of carb.The bearings looked great as you can see in pic (I hope ) theres no rust or corrosion at all or any discoloring from heat or excessive wear.It does make the sucking sound as you rotate engine by hand. I read thats what rotary engines do if they have good compression..It does have the motor mount ,There are no nicks or chips anywhere that I saw on the engine, the rotor housing has a recessed area for the screw that keeps it in place ,it might look like its nicked there but it's not..I will ship it to the highest bidder at the end of this weekend ,I will post the bids for all to see if they are not posted publicly. I wont post your name just the offer if it is the highest current offer. I am sure so of you guys will get pissed off for me selling the engine this way ,but I dont see a bunch of these for sale to know whats a fair price. I saw some really high priced new & used ones, I am not out to make a killing but nor do I want to give it away ,seeing that I am unemployed & will be using (most of) this money for the less exciting things in life like food & bills. If you have any questions I will try to answer them ,I am not the original owner & I do not have much experience with rotary engines.I am all ears if you want to school me on them.
thanks & Happy Fathers Day to all !!
Thank you
