    There are enough photos (be sure to click on that down arrow on the auction listing) to identify nearly everything in the case. It's common stuff including a couple of ordinary rulers, triangles, protractors, parallel rule, in addition to the star finder. There's also a "pocket sized aluminum" E-6B manual DR flight computer and a Weems plotter in a vermin-eaten wrapper. And I see a US Power Squadron LHA♈︎ calculator (copyright 1973 so that puts a lower date on the last use of this kit).

    I would estimate the value of the lot of the items inside the case at no more than $20. If re-sold indivually on eBay, the items might bring $40 net ...but that would take a solid two hours work minimum to craft decent-looking auctions, so not much profit! As for the small case itself, that's up to collector value... maybe $20?
