They can go for a lot, but in better condition that yours. I'd say it's had some parts replaced, the bolt release looks a lot cleaner and less rusty than the receiver.
Does appear that you have the crest on the receiver, so that's good. Some have been ground off.
Er..... hmmm, dunno. Maybe in the $200-300 range? Just a guess. Condition of the bore would be important, too. Yours could be restored, I think, with some work, although the front receiver ring is somewhat pitted (at least it appears to be).
Really nice condition 1909s can go for $500-600, easily. Watch the auctions on Gunbroker, etc.
