I can't offer you any expertise in this area, other than to suggest you include how old it is, what kind of shape it's in, what environment was it used in and how well was it maintained. Also, are you the first owner? Things like that will certainly affect the value. Think of it like it's a used car you're trying to sell.
"No, really, a buddy of mine owed me some money and he had it just sitting around in his garage. Just sittin around! What part of that don't you get? He brought it over and we called it even. He said the serial numbers got scratched off when they moved it out of the coffee shop 'cuz they were in a hurry and his buddy forgot to put down the hacksaw when he picked it up. So, look. Ya wanna' 'ax a bunch questions or you wanna' buy a freakin' espresso machine or what? I ain't got all day."
