I bought mine (the one with the 11 inch bell) for $3200. The seller was originally asking $3500, which I thought was reasonable, but when he found out I was scraping the cash together, and that I go to the same school his wife did, he offered to knock $300 of the price of the horn. Your friend probably could post it on ebay and get $3000 for it in a week, but he could get more for it if he sent it to Dave Fedderly (Baltimore Brass) or Matt Walters (Dillon Music) and put the horn on consignment, even with the 10% consignment fee.
Have him call one of these guys, both have links in the shops page on this website, and both will give helpful, honest opinions on the value of the horn.
