Rush Model K? - Tue Sep 05 2017 08:36 PM

This pump which I believe is a Rush model K is on a family farm. It was in use in the 50s when my dad was working on the farm. It is missing the lower skin, handle, hose and nozzle. The base is missing two mounting holes from laying in the dirt for many years. There is also a significant dent in the upper skin on the side which is down in the photo. The glass appears to be intact.

I am interested in purchasing it from an estate and would like to know your opinion of a fair price in this condition.

Not seeing the pump in person but considering the description I feel Bryce is right on the money.
