Bolt for Boys anti tank rifle

Hello folks
I have a friend that has a complete bolt assembly for a Boys anti-tank rifle from WW2. It's in excellent shape with no rust, and we are wondering what such an item would be worth.
Can anyone out there give me some insights as to its value?

Tough to price an item like that. To me it's worth about $5. To someone with a Boys that already has a bolt, perhaps $50-ish. To someone with a bolt-less Boys...............priceless! Good luck finding that last guy, you might get lucky.

Yeah Jonny I was thinking the same thing.
To someone who needs one it's a gem, but to anyone that doesn't have a Boys with a bad bolt or no bolt it's a wonderful paper weight.
I just need to find the right man who needs it.

Or someone that can make a receiver for it and make a 50 BMG

Have you found any websites just for Boys shooters or collectors?
