I purchased a 6700 at Dayton. Now that I'm satisfied with the new radio, my 6300, purchased new from Flex in October 2014 is surplus. Everything is as new. It has the ATU. What is the going price?

To give you an idea, I paid $2100 (including shipping/insurance) for my used 6300 (new from factory in October of 14 as well) in February of 2015. This was a no frills 6300, and didn't come with the ATU or Flex Control. I bought this on QTH's swapmeet, and most Signature Series radios sell quickly on that site.

I think $2250-$2300 would be a reasonable place for you to start considering it has the ATU...

I haven't looked into the 6500 therefore I have no comparison. Seems like the 6300 does about all I want for now. However I'm not a DX'er and I don't chase paper.  Just more of a rag chewer I suppose.  I usually work one band on the 6300 and listen for another such as 
6 meters or 10 or 12.

The RX (IMD DR3 @ 2 kHz) performance of the 6300 is down a little bit from the FLEX-6500/FLEX-6700 by ~10 dB

The ARRL did reviews on the 6300 and 6700 side by side a few months back in QST, and that would give you a great comparison between the 65/6700 and the 6300.
