A lot more information is needed to even guess at the value of your proposed purchase. Details of the C-96, its accessories and the box for a start. Detailed photographs would be a great help.

If the C-96 is refinished, parts are not matched or original, and its accessories including the box are modern reproductions it would have no collector value with a valus less that $1000.

If it is a rare variation that is all original and matched, with original accessories and box its value could exceed $100,000.

If you do not know very much about the C-96, I would take an expert that you trust with you to make the purchase. I know a fair amount about pistols but would not consider myself sufficiently qualified to make such a the purchase of a boxed C-96 without a lot of study and advice from experts.
