What is the value of a NOS Atwater Kent model LA distributor ?
NOS with all ht-leads-wires-labels-box and instruktion leaflet .
All in mint condition .

That is beautiful. I have and am running several A-K LAs and they are an asset. A new one in the original box and information, tags, etc. is priceless.
I would never install it...except in a museum.
But that is no help, is it?
Contact the museum of American sped for the Bill Smith collection, if they already have one and yours is complete I would think you should be able to get $400.00 for it.
The three rarest things I see are the resistance unit, extension used for 26/27 and the box. Ok a 4th, it's NOS! Very cool.
Were there any pot metal used in the A-K disturbutors?
If it was, then there may be a reason it has remained NOS
(I've seen NOS pot metal parts swelling on the shelf so they couldn't be used - but still cool collectibles)
This unit has appeared in the Classifieds section.
I don't think all of the bodies were made out of the cheaper "pot metal" like the Tornado was. The ones like A-k's and Bosch seem to hold up better then others and may have used a better grade metal in their construction.
