Subject: [Leica] Help me value this camera - M4 - please

I saw a user M4 today (I can't reveal where for obvious reasons), unpriced
as 'the second hand guy' wasn't there. Here are the specs

- -- Chrome body sn 1180***
- -- roughly exc + cosmetic condition. One dint in baseplate, rubbing in all
obvious places, vulcanite intact, back cover a bit tatty
- -- wind-on smooth and all shutter speeds lively and sound right
- -- rangefinder way out of wack but looks like a straight adjustment job
- -- looks like rf mirror has some fungus
- -- vf clear and bright

Basically, after a serious CLA it looks like it might be a really good user.
Thing is, another lugger I know bought a dead cheap camera from this place
and so I think it might be a bargain price. What should I feel good about
paying for this camera (mrs Deadman needs one)?
