Value of a Seeburg 10079M Jukebox?

I have recently acquired a vintage 1980ish Seeburg 100 79M. I'm seeing it's rare. It doesn't turn on, but I have all the keys. I am wondering its retail value or cost of restoration. I see they are quite rare with 100 made mainly exported.

How do you know the true working condition if it does not turn on?
Keys may be helpful but doesn't mean it will play as these machines are really quite 'delicate' when it comes to 'working' as so many things can be wrong that will stop everything from playing right.Speakers can be easily damaged.

All parts are expensive - even down to the original screws needed to make it original again.
Are you talking about doing repairs yourself or were you planning to have someone else restore it for you?
Is this to be for you or for resale?
If you plan to restore and sell do you know if jukeboxes are popular in your area as they are not in many areas and shipping by an individual can be very expensive.
Do you wish to restore it as it was or change to CD's or?
Is this a 'middle age' bucket list item and you're willing to spend whatever it takes to get it restored?
All of these answers will make a difference in how anyone researches this question.

Are there any repair shops in your area? usually these are the best place to start asking questions but there are some online sites that may be able to help you.
Before asking your questions you will need answers to the above questions as well as good knowledge as to the working condition of your box. Most will want several pictures - inside and outside - closeups; your location.

Not all jukeboxes are worth thousands of dollars even in good working order but usually (from what I've seen) the older ones are more valuable - most of those (like 50's) were really unusual and beautiful boxes.

If you want to restore the jukebox you should study how they are made first off. The electronics inside of them is not so easy to troubleshoot or even repair. The replacement parts will be quite expensive depending on the exact problem of the machine. I would contact a jukebox specialist and speak with them to make your decision if you want to repair the machine or just sell it off for parts. You could spend quiet a bit of money and the repair for the jukebox could cost you more than you could actually gain for selling it again and it is restored.
