M1 Carbine bolt worth

I have several M1 Carbine parts laying around and I noticed that I have an unmarked Type 3 bolt. Does anyone know what that would be worth? I have pics included

Looks to be a rounded rather than flat top bolt. Typically they go for $100 and up with some as much as $200 (normally the earlier flat top bolts). Somewhere I have a few books on the carbines and seem to recall some bolts having markings on the end of the lugs. Anyway, in good condition complete they start at about $100 and go up from there.

Even for one with absolutely no markings at all like mine?

There are a bunch on Gunbroker. Looks like they are about $100-150 average. Not sure how the lack of marking would affect that

GI bolts marked, unmarked, likely commercial.

I agree its likely a commercial bolt. All my parts are G.I. and marked, not sure what a non marked unknown maker is going for? You know the old saying, its only worth what someone is willing to pay. List it for $100 OBO and accept an offer your happy with if it comes along?

What other M1 Carbine parts do you have laying around?
