Positive verification of the year & authenticity of all parts requires you to remove the neck and look for a date on the heel of the neck and in the neck pocket, and also to remove the pickguard and verify the date codes on the pots (volume & tone controls) and the appearance of the solder joints. Make sure and take pictures of everything you find!
Value: Check to see what similar basses are selling for in the TB classifieds and also on eBay. I believe TalkBass rules prevent you from discussing value unless you are a supporting member.
