Is it a 34S or a 48XL? Size has a HUGE impact on value on these things.

Prices for N-4s on ebay run from under $100 to around $200. One with cutter tags - don't know.  Some say lesser because it has no real provenance, lived it's life in a box in a warehouse somewhere. And the N-4s weren't approved until October 1944 (not worn on d-day at least not the June 6th one). Some say it is a pristine example so worth the higher end. Of course you can't use it for anything except display or as a sample to make a repro.
