Could you provide a picture showing the entire jigsaw?
Thanks for the pic!
I can see that you have an electric table jigsaw with 528Watts of power, which was a top mark at that time. The jigsaw was manufacturer in the 1980s. Even though it is a piece of engineering, there was a huge number of jigsaw produced, so it's not considered rare.
Regarding the value of your item, I have just perform a market research of similar sold items as yours. I performed the research based upon the most recent finished auctions and private sells, so the value given is the real market value of your item. This is the only way to know the exact value of your unit.

Could you tell me the text of the label? The model was produced from a long period, so the dating may not be accurate.
Yes, that's the model number. The other label is the motor specifications label, which is related to the motor manufacturer.
Now I can date the jig saw, which was manufacturer in the 1940s period. The model number FD2355B provides all the information.
The value will be in the range of 70-120$.
