The older 870's are considered to be better than today's 870. I have no idea of the value, but I would certainly not part with it.

Not as much as you may think. Depending on condition, assuming that it operates fine I'd give it a value of anywhere from $300 on up to about $450 but it's worth keeping over selling in my eyes.

Will take a Wingmaster over the express 870 any day. Own both and much prefer the older 870 Wingmaster action to the Express. Generally will be smoother and simpler.

You won't find a nice old Wingmaster for $300 anywhere around here.

Keep it. I wouldn't trade 1 old Wingmaster for 2 newer 870 Expresses.

Nice score! The only down side to an old Wingmaster is the fixed choke bbls. If it's in a choke you use regularly you're golden. If not, New bbls can be pricey. I saw an old Wingmaster with 2 bbls (full and mod) at a gun show several years ago for $500.00. Still kicking myself for not jumping on that one.
