Welcome to the forum.
Since ther is no national registration, you do not have to "put it in your name".
From what I have seen on this board, and I am sure others more knowledgeable than me add their comments, it is worth at least $500, espically since you have the box and papers to go with it.
If I were in your situation, I believe that I would keep this fine weapon.
If you take the rubber grips off and post the serial number, someone here will be able to tell you the date of manufacture. The serial number should be on the label on the end of the box. Is this a Model 60, or is there a dash after the 60 followed by another number? This should also be on the box label.
