I'd value those guys at like 50 cents each to be honest once I have enough Painted Fire Reds in a colony I plan to sell them for like 2.5$ each.
I was lucky enough to meet up with one member and get PFR's for $1 in a higher quantity (believe it was around 20 or 30 of them), however that was just pure luck and generosity. I'd gladly pay $2.50 as that's likely half the price of a LFS when they're available.

I also agree it's likely a cherry shrimp, doesn't seem to me to have the same tail\legs (they almost look like claws on ghost shrimp), however if he's not worried about not having red shrimp he can let those breed. However, as was already mentioned LykeOMGee, if you do want better genes, you're better of giving those away, so the don't downgrade the gene pool of more colorful shrimp you purchase in the future.
