It depends. If it is a 91/30 beater do whatever you want, it can't loose value. If it is rare, Mosins have been known to go for upwards of $2,000!
I bought mine for $115 and it's worth > $900! The seller never knew!
Post some detailed pictures. Be sure to post date and manufacturer. I posted a link a couple of posts back that will greatly help you identify the rifle if you'd like to check it out as well.
