It's not really bonsai but looks like the ramification is quite nice already. Not much taper. I think it is good material to work on. Not sure what style though. My statements are only due to my taste so we all may have different opinions.

Depends on who is buying (so it depends on what your local market for bonsai is like too).
Bonsai boy dares to sell a similar less interesting Privet for almost 100 dollar:

www.bonsaiboy.com/catalog/product6348.html

Contrary to Bob I wouldn't mind calling this a bonsai (style is not so hard Bob, that's "informal broom") - but it is not a great one due to lack of taper and nebari.
Ramification is nice indeed. Value... hard to say. Kaizen Bonsai sells something similar for 39 UKL, but they have more interesting material for slightly more: www.kaizenbonsai.com

Hard to say what the value of your tree is. I'd say something between 25 - 40 euro. I would not be interested for less than 20 though.

i think you have a nice inf. broom there and i don't see why you couldn't get 50-80 u.s. for it

thank you for posting it and good choice of pot to. the pot is a bigger deal than most ppl think.

Not sure how big it is, but this one was $100 including the pot. It's about 4" tall, but the trunk needs work. It'll probably be 200 if it was healthy. $300 if trunk was nice.

I think people here have a very warped perception of prices.
Neither plant shown in this thread should cost more then 20-30 usd

Also, they don't read. This topic was posted two and a half years ago, the poster only posted twice and has never been seen since.

Seems we do agree about the price though :
