Came in possession of a Noblet Model 88. Can anyone help?

I really don't know much about Saxophones. But I have aquired this Noblet Model 88 SN# 11007. "Made in Paris". The case it in is LeBlanc. It plays very well still. Has the original case and all accessories. Even a warranty card stating it was purchased in 1957 brand new. I'm having a hard time finding any information online about these older Noblet models. 
This saxophone is in extremely good condition. No dents. Virtually no scratches. 

Can anyone tell me what it might be worth, if anything?
Is it rare?
Is it a good quality saxophone?
Are Noblet and Leblanc the same company at the time of manufactor? 

Basically any information would be helpful at this point.

    I ended up email a guy called Dr. Saxophone who owns a shop in Wisconsin. With only a couple pictures he estimated it at roughly $650. He also mentioned with Covid-19 the market is hard to predict as students may not be having music class this year.

    i listed it on eBay for $600 and it sold in about 24 hours. I paid $100 for it. So I'm happy.

    Just thought I'd update the the question for someone in the future.
