Subject: [CR]value of NOS De Rosa Anniversario with Record Century
I know it's out of the official timeline but maybe as a true classic still on topic.
The owner of a LBS showed me yesterday his hidden treasure, a new unridden pearl white De Rosa 35 Anniversario with the famous blue anodized Record Century group.

He asked me what the current value of such a bike would be for collectors. I guessed (wildly) that the value might be the price when new in 1991 (~2500 EUR today). Does anybody has a better guess? Has such a bike (or another one with Century parts) been sold recently at eBay or Yahoo?
I know the Century parts are much rarer than the 50th Anniversary group, but is there a corresponding demand? I'd prefer the looks of the common silver parts BTW.
This is not a sales offer (where I want to weasel out of giving a price), the bike is not mine, I won't buy it myself and I even don't know if the owner wants to sell it at all outside of Germany. I think he just wants to be prepared for offers of local customers.
