Mint condition El Capitan, 2 10 rds mags, extra grips. Great condition no disconnect. Thanks
The best way to find that information is to go to Gunbroker, completed auctions, and look at similar items.
This may save you some research time. I extracted these 16 completed auction prices from about 1,800 BHP prices I've collected over seven years or so. All except the first price are from Gunbroker. The first one is from Smith & Wesson forum classified. Ten round magazines not mentioned but Mec-Gar sells the 10- and 13- round blued ones for $31.10. BHP prices bounced up when the model was discontinued, so if you have 'mint' one, I'd guess its worth to be better than average. Only one way to find out.

I too have a Capitan ( no El) model Hi Power but I am in a different situation as I have no desire to sell any of the several hundred firearms accumulated through the years. However the Capitan was a unique pistol that popped up through the years after the tangent sight had been discontinued. Further complications as some were marked FN and some Browning, some slotted and some did not have the stock slot cut into the frame at all.
I am fortunate to also have an original 1935 issue to the Belgian army to compare the Capitan with.
