Seeking opinions on a Fox No. 1 portable

Hi Typeheads -

I have the opportunity to buy THIS TYPEWRITER. (Disclaimer: sorry for the crappy pic. I didn't take it!)
It looks like it's not in top condition, but I gather from some superficial research that its'relatively rare. Any opinions? What would you pay for it?

The Fox portable is certainly rare. It was a copy of the Corona Portable. And when Corona found out, they got really pissed off. They sued Fox for every penny they had. Fox never recovered, and then the Depression killed them off.
