Looking for help valuing silscreen campaign poster

So I stumbled on a campaign poster for Joe Edwards for Pitkin County Commissioner (CO) a silkscreen by Thomas W Benton. Both are famous for their connection to Hunter S. Thompson. Joe Edwards was the first Freak Power Candidate and was almost elected as Mayor of Aspen with Thompson as his Campaign Manager. Benton also did the Famous Aspen Wall Posters and designed the HST for Sheriff posters and I believe the Gonzo Double Thumb Fist Art. There is no info out there about the scarcity of this specific print. The guy who wrote the book on Benton is wanting to buy it and I have no idea where to start haggling.
