Wondering how much of a premium a 1873 240xxxB case hardened rifle would bring over a blued model in equal average condition.

Thank you

24″ octogon, 32-20, made in 1886, full length mag, straight grip, no checkering, buck horn sights…ect

The finish is faded, but it appears it might be,

You can send me the photos to my email below. You have a hardware store gun if its blued. If its case hardened it would normally have extra figure wood. Is it case hardened?

That’s a blued gun, not case colored.
