    Look at its successor here:

    £377, rather expensive, but that is RS. You could probably get it cheaper elsewhere.

    However, if you wanted to sell that one, I personally would not give more that £25 * for it.

    * On edit, other people may consider it to have a higher value. This is just my personal opinion.

    600volts vs 1000volts relates to the safety category, and your old meter was probably made before the safety category rating for testmeters was introduced.
    Have a read at the Fluke application note which TVtech has linked to in his thread:

    Have you checked to see what you'd have to pay to buy one?
