A list of "suggested" prices is not evidence of fair market value.
I would consider it unethical to give a donor a letter that in any
way implies such a list might be valid evidence.  I would want to
pay another party (a commercial dealer, a different museum) for a
legitimate appraisal that is based on actual prices paid for other
specimens.
