Heck with inflation, that is cheaper than the original sale price!

Good deal for somebody. I’ve already got a set. Great book.

That is a good price. You can sometimes get it cheaper on a no name auction house.

 It’s a auction with no bids, time will tell what the sale price is. I would insure for full value and bid with the shipping cost considered. Great book if you are collecting 73’s. T/R

I see that these books do not include the spiral bound booklet that contained Gorden’s research numbers. Are they charging extra for that most important list of serial numbers? The spiral bound booklet has descriptions and relevant info on all the ’73’s he researched.Confused

 Chuck,

  It’s a spiral wound booklet with 73’s listed by serial number that turned up in his survey. He listed them starting at serial number 6 and went to serial number 720610, approximately 4000 guns. The information on each gun was gathered by him or other collectors that contributed information on their guns. A survey of 1873’s. Sometimes it only included rifle, carbine, or musket and caliber. Other guns might have additional information such as barrel length and type with codes for features and brief notes about the gun. Examples of notes: short, redone, stolen, cut, restored, tacks,”Buffalo Bill”, and anything that caught his eye.

 It’s 110 pages of known serial numbers. Tom

Chuck,

It has the 4000 guns that Gordon used to derive the rarity and the statistics. It has general configurations and some condition remarks but no info on where he saw it.
