1894 SRC .30 made 1918. 95% barrel and tube dark blue, 30% receiver blue. 90% buttplate blue. Wood has almost all the varnish with some storage bumps and nicks. Perfect bore & action. All original. Left side is neatly stamped in 1 ” letters L.A. CO., these were sold by LASO about 50 years ago. Price is $1200.  I have not kept up with these, but it is a nice looking carbine. Is this close to fair value?

It does not sound unreasonable.

Checking, I see SFPD marked 1894s bring big premiums.  I was surprised at what SFPD carbines sold for. Is San Francisco really that much more interesting in that era than Los Angeles?

Keep in mind that most of the S.F.P.D. marked carbines encountered are in high condition.  Awhile back I paid $4,125 for one in 90%+ condition (90%+ receiver blue with a few scratches,nearly 100% barrel/mag blue, and excellent wood condition).  I attribute the combination of high condition plus being S.F.P.D. marked set the price.  Rarity is also a factor–there were only 80 S.F.P.D. marked 94 carbines.  Not sure how many LA carbines are out there.
