Please give me a appraisal for selling this item

What I have found out is as follows

This bench is made by Standard Chair of Gardner Inc. which is in Massachusetts.  What I have found out from them it is a limited edition chair only made in 1976 for the 200 year anniversary of this country.  They only made 5000 of these bench which is all maple wood., and they sold for $129 in 1976. I can't find anything else online about this bench.

Under the sitting area is a marking of 1634 and the company's Logo sticker. On the back of the bench is a stained logo on the wood with the name of the company with the Limited EditionLettering. Also in a little ribbon is 1776 -Liberty Series -1976 comes with a signed paper from the manufacturer

Hello, I read an article where someone was inquiring about value and an appraiser had responded saying that according to his research the average sales price was $600.  Unfortunately i did not save a link, but i found through a google search about 6 months ago.  I have the same bench which is why i was researching it.
