As an expired patent it has no value. In 1956 patents had a term of 17 years from the date of grant, and maintenance fees did not exist in the US until 1980 or so. Today patents terminate 20 years after the day of the application filing. If a patent took 3 years before being granted, it would end up being in-force for 17 years.
