I've found a Wilde range finder locally .
2) What is it worth in "as is" condition, if there is anyone that could work on it?
Any help/advice would be appreciated.

I paid a LOT for mine from Deutsche Optic when they first came into the country many years ago... it was expensive, but I got the pick of the litter, so I don't feel bad.
Saw one on e-bay a few weeks ago for $299, and it didn't sell. It looked OK.
Contact them, they are in PA and you might be able to get it.
For ranging over flat lands, like Prairie Dog towns, there is nothing better. They will beat the lasers every time.
