The silence on your question is probably because it is impossible to answer.
What model Buffet is it? They make a wide range of models from student plastic ones to pro wooden ones with the price of the latter in excess of 10 times the former.
Also age & condition is a great consideration.

All Buffet clarinets should have serial numbers. Look on the back of the upper and lower joints, toward the end. Most Buffets will also have a model number on the front of the top joint, just below the Buffet logo. Unless it's an older model, most Buffet wooden clarinets without a model number marking will be an R-13, with a replacement price of several thousand dollars. Have your local music store take a look at it for you. They'll be able to tell you what model it is and what it's worth in your local market.

As a paralegal, I also feel that there may be some ethical issues with band teachers doing business with students, but that's another question that wasn't asked here.

Can you provide a link to pics of your clarinet

alternatively, you can check here for vidual identifiers of your clarinet
http://www.clarinetperfection.com/clsnBuffet.htm#Identification

But if it's a Buffet professional instrument the value varies dependent upon the age. R13 era and on (1955 and on) it's worth at least probably $800 (we're talking eBay auction values)

Pre 1955 value is about $400 then going down on earlier models ..... but that all depends upon many factors too.

that looks more then any old crappy $100 student instument, it looks like more the markingss have worn off but i can make out the word evette on it but i can't identify it, if that is the original case some one might be able to identify it from that, i would say e- series based on the cae and the fact it is wooden but the paris ones are meant to be better then the others. i would say you require a new cork on it too as the one on the bottom of the top joint looks a bit funny to me and looks like it could also do with a run over with
a cloth to shine up the keys slightly (i use a yellow duster on my clarinet and that cleans my keys up a treat) bu i would say you can get more then $100 and more then $200 and with a clean up-(just a standard service which the tech would replace the pads that need doing) you could get quite a bit for it
