Evette Schaeffer Alto sax, What should I do with it??

I have this 1890's model, which is now in a pretty bad condition and need repairment.

They say it'd cost about 190$, and wouldn't worth its own value, so this is where I need

second, or third, or fourth opinion. If you guys were me, what would you do? Please, I really

need your help, thank you in advance.

    If you want a horn to play, sell it for what you can get and get a different one.  Pieces of ancient saxophone history are cool for collectors, but they have too many drawbacks for players.  You can get perfectly serviceable used horns for a few hundred dollars, just not top of the line ones.

      Thanks for your reply. I was thinking about selling it too, but the problem is, there aren't sthat many collectors here, and the only other option I can think of is to try sell it via ebay or some site like that which, frankly, I have no idea how to ship it as i've never done this before. :((
