Vintage Cast Porsche Speedster Car

Up for sale is this Vintage cast Speedster I've had this for a long while, very nice desk ornament or for the mantle if you're a hardcore Porsche enthusiast. There is no maker label or anything, but it's an amazing piece. It has the typical wear with a couple scratches here or there but nothing deep or ugly. No idea what it's worth as I have nothing to base it off of besides other Porsche die cast cars so if someone on here happens to be interested toss me an offer. I'm not looking for anything crazy, maybe a couple hundred plus shipping. I have enough BMW models

Looks more like a 550 spyder than speedster?

You're probably right, I call them all speedsters LOL but thanks for the heads up. It's a very plain model which is nice. I like the simplicity instead of the regular ones with the sponsors and crap all over them.

Is it stamped 925 sterling silver? How much does it weight?

No sir, I was wondering why I kept getting asked if it was sterling silver and then I re-read my ad. It's 100% not sterling, looks like cast iron underneath, it's just silver in color. There are no markings anywhere on the car making me think that it may be a one of a kind piece.

I'm curious as to why you feel it is worth so much money. It's not an accurate replica of anything and it looks to be rather crudely made. To be honest, it looks like something I'd see at a garage sale for maybe 10 or 15 bucks. Am I missing something?

Or are you attempting to test Barnum's theory?

No offense, but
That's kind of crazy...unless you have some reason that it should be worth that, IMO.
