Apple II Rev 2 value?

I have tons of integer roms and spare keys. I am a veteran of that whole business. :) I recall trying the flush method on my Rev 4 here but it turned out to be fruitless on a lot of them. I think mine spent time in the Titanic's purser's safe.
So value wise, could I go $1300-1800 without causing offence? I actually prefer the broken machines -- just fun to fix up. But also because the initial outlay hopefully is cheaper.

Sticking keys are normal if it's a datanetics keyboard (original). You can recover the switches usually by flushing then with 91% ISP and lots of mechanical motion. I usually pull the key cap off and use a needle nose pliers about 50 times on each switch flushing it every so often using the ISP in an eye dropper. Even if there is a key or two you can't recover they can be found for about $10-15 each every so often on eBay.
A set of Integer Roms on a language card will cost you about $150.
Just remember when you usually see these early Apple II up for sale they usually aren't working correctly. Keep that in mind when you research prices. Early Apple II are like Rev-0 and Rev-1 ALTAIR, people usually don't sell them in perfect working condition unless you had some $$$$. So easier to buy one with potential and get to running.

>>> My Rev 4 has an Apple Rev 4 board in it. Basically I tossed the clone board and PSU and replaced with what should be the correct motherboard (w/integer basic ROMs) and I think PSU. PSU seems to be a matter of debate, some have suggested to me it should be the silver A2M, others said it should be the gold 2+ style one I have in there now. Not sure on that. The keyboard is the original for sure, but I had to do some trace repair on it using short jumper wires.

>>> Well your rev-4 setup isn't going to be worth top dollar because of the condition and clone motherboard, you don't mention if it's the original datanetics keyboard and if the powersupply is the original one. Infact it may only be worth a couple of hundred dollars or less.
>>> Basically the answers to those questions determine if you are simply selling a case or a case with extras. Notice I didn't say you are selling a Rev4 Apple II because the motherboard is missing.
>>> Also depending on the hole that was drilled also that can impact the value a lot for a case since people looking for a case want a good condition one.
>>> Answer those questions and we will give you a good idea.
>>> As for the Rev 2. In the condition explained I'd expect maybe 2k. btw. Rev 0 are going for more 3k if they are in complete condition. Most aren't. They tend to have replacement parts like supply or keyboard. If the motherboard is replaced they are just a case.
>>> Also with anything timing is important, if a person is looking at the time, they may spend more than if no one is looking at that specific time. I have seen eBay auctions sometimes too late and kicked my self how low something went for. You just never know.
