Yes. The only reason I can think of that the hamdle scales could become loose is if the compression rivets backed off and were not fully compressed. A simple tap of a lexan hammer on each rivet head should do the trick. You could do this yourself most likely. Be sure to back up the rivet head on the opposite side. The Dupont Delrin handles are dimensionally stable, so it is doubtful that they have shrunken. Value is whatever you can get for yours if you sell it. That is highly dependent upon condition and the venue in which you sell it, and the quality of your photos.
