I could not find a value be did see this at one retailer:
"
DESCRIPTION
The Victorinox Classic US Navy Swiss Army knife is a blue, standard Classic SD knife that replaces the regular "cross and shield" emblem with a US Navy insignia.

These knives are generally sold at military bases. For some reason the Navy knives are much less common than the Army and Air Force knives. We sell the few we find as collector's items, at a premium price.
"
The key words being "premium price"

I don't have a price yet..but it'll go with the rest of mine.I've never seen a blue one before..in that size..I just wondered what a fair price is.That store has a tendency of pricing things through the roof in the collectible area.Three of them went on ebay together for $10 but I think they were little ones..This one will probably run me $15-20..just wondering if it is worth it.. :roll:

You be the one to know if it's worth it. $15.00 could fetch a nice Danish chair :P

Here is one that we saw a couple of years ago. I got it at the Salvation Army.
