Anyone know how to place a relatively accurate value on a fossil?

I picked this fossil of a few ferns at the flea market today for $4. The lady said she her uncle lived in Pennsylvania and found this. When I said I didn't know what it was worth, even if it was worth $4 she laughed and said yeah it's worth 20 times that. Think she is right? Beats me, but it's neat.

I collect some fossils and would probably price that one around $20-25. Fossil ferns are fairly common in shale.

Thanks Chris! I'll get me a plate stand and stand this up in my office as a conversation piece.
