What's the asking price? I bought a K-22 (predecessor of the 17) that has blueing wear on all the sharp edges for $400 recently. I'd say $400 would be a good price for a 17 in as new condition, possibly a bit more. It also depends on availability in your region. I'd wait and let Xavier Breath and Old Fuff add their much more knowledheable analyses before you go on what I think though.
Edit to add; Welcome to THR ruttinbuck, enjoy your time here, it's a great site.

New and unfired, with the box papers and tools, it could bring $500 under the right conditions. If you are missing the box and extra stuff then $400-450 would be good. A four inch barrel would help get it sold a lot quicker. These estimates are for my area. S&W wheelies vary in price across the country.
The full lug barrel and unpinned barrel are what hurts you a bit in the collector's arena. Still a nice revolver though!
FWIW, I just bought this Model 17-4 sans box and papers for $400. I was glad to get it too!
