Unshure of model.  Like new condition.

Is it a TDS and does it have the Multi-Zero feature? I don't believe Kahles put a true Christmas tree in the 3-9x42. 

It should be worth $500-600. Less for trade in.

These were the AH reticles. Photo credited to the late Roy Finn.

I have some experience, they are good scopes

If memory serves me right the pre-CL Kahles American Hunter came with a TDS reticle.  That is probably what you have.

American Hunter was renamed into KX, while the CL had a related optical system except with an additional field flattener lens across the board and parallax adjustment in the 3-9x42 (and higher magnification) models.

These pop up on Ebay once in a blue moon and depending on the condition go for $400 to $600 dollars.

Koshkin is right, as usual.  I just recently purchased an AH with the TDS reticle.  Condition was good with some ring marks.  Gave $450 for it.
