Phil, I know some on the wreck knock eBay, but one thing it's really good
for is to check prices. Look at completed auctions and you can see what
they actually sold for. FWIW, I have three #7's and I think I paid between
$30-$55 for each.
Of course it matters less what it's worth to all of us and more what it's
worth to you. It sounds to me like you don't want it as a collector, but
more as a user. If so you can probably pick one up rather cheaply because a
little rust won't hurt it (and is easy to clean up) plus the japanning isn't
critical for a user. In other words, don't pay extra for something you
don't need if you could buy a cheaper user elsewhere.
