According to "2002 Standard Catalog of Firearms - The collector's Price and Reference Guide, 12th (and most current) Edition:

1960-1970
NIB - $450.00
Exc - 325.00
V.G.- 200

Because yours is the "K" series add 15% -"K" introduced in 1960 and featured heavier frame, nickel plating and wood grips.

If you have an extra cylinder add 10%.
