From what I have seen on eBay, these are in the $200 range. There is an unproven theory that if you hold your cell phone up to the machine and lose your signal, that means the machine contains mercury.

The value of anything depends a great deal on the overall condition and how well it is working.
Your machines looks kinda 'beat up' but pictures do not always tell the whole story.
Does the machine run properly?
Does it need servicing?
From what I've found it appears this machine was made in the 60's but you should contact some of the forums to find out more.
Most forums will not tell the value but they may help you identify the type of machine you have so you can research what they may be selling for - but remember - condition matters.

Here are some sites you can join and ask for help. They will want good pictures of full machine (all around) to be able to help you.
