Here are the pictures.

I have seen the 73 or one like it before and they are a non firing repo.

The 66 looks like its been buffed and plated after it left the factory and now mostly worn off. What is the serial number?

Thanks about the 1873, that is it.  Made in Switzerland I guess. That amount equals $3400 US dollars, if that is possible.

Your 66 was in the August 1995 Butterfield & Butterfield auction. From the info I have at that time it had the inscription on it. I don’t have the catalog but they are available online or someone here my have a copy. Cody does not have records of that serial number.

That looks like it would cover it and its not a lot of money if not.
