Well it seems that my prediction was spot on.  The “box” (and whatever might be inside) is back at Grove’s site for $6500 again!  The high bid at Ward’s was $5024.  https://www.wardscollectibles.com/auction/91/viewitem.php?item=4156  And the new box for sale listing in Guns International.

These are not the same gun. He had two of them and the one on his website is not the one that he listed with Wards. So, it would appear that maybe he did get one of the M61 mystery boxes sold. Glad it wasn’t me for that price. 

  

Well dang!  You are absolutely correct on that.  I retract my sarcasm.  But I would still ask a question of just how does a cardboard box stay in that good of shape for 60 years??  And why are there two yellow labels on the current for sale box?

Michael, I agree, that box is pretty darn nice for it’s age (must have bveen stored in an airtight vaultWink). Not sure about the double labels.  I have a model 61 .22 mag new in the box that has a label over top of a label. On another note, he has a round barrel .22 wrf listed for $4,900. The .22 wrf I asked you about on Saturday was almost as nice except it had a small pitting mark on the left side of the receiver.
