There are several versions of the Model 1896, but I'm assuming you mean a 9mm Military contract or Wartime Commercial model from Mauser Werkes. In original "good" condition they are valued at $1,000 to $1,200 according to the 1991 Standard Catalog of Firearms. Be wary there are many Chinese fakes on the market and some are even unsafe to fire. Look for the Mauser banner.

If by "great" condition you mean NRA Excellent then that raises things considerably. I gave you values for NRA "good" condition.
