    It has slight damage to it:

    - Scratches on aluminium back
    - Tiny (about 3mm) scratch on LCD, barely visible
    - The earphones work but due to dodgy wiring the left earphone sometimes loses sound until you jiggle the wires around

    Based on this, what do people think would be a reasonable price to ask for? The only damage to the iPhone itself is aesthetic, it functions perfectly.

    Search eBay and see what iPhones are going for then you'd have your answer :p

    Is it 16GB or 8GB? Start with what you're willing to let it go for.

    uuummm. anyways.

    i'd say start the bidding on eBay around 135$ - set a buy it now for 245

    if it's jailbroken+unlocked make sure to include that. you can use eBay (like stated before) to search through completed listings.

    use the highest sales to construct your ad for yours.

    you may want to put it up on craigslist for a week before you try and sell it. dealing locally rules and you can get more money from people who are afraid of using eBay
