 On Friday a 1873 One of One Hundred sold at Rock Island for $805,000. Lot 35 was a honest 40% blue, faded case, Deluxe first model 73. I looked at the gun at Tulsa, liked it even though the butt stock had a crack in the wrist. The fact that they only made eight One of One Hundred 1873's made it Rare, Rare, and Expensive! T/R

One of those rare guns that more than a couple of folks with the means wanted.  Based on rarity, how does the pricing of a 1/100 compare to an "Engraved like 1/1000".  Havent been following the auctions for some time, just curious.

Here's one that's even more rare.  Serial #1.  I've never seen or heard of one before and it sold for a little over $24,000.  Unfortunately, it doesn't have the desirability of a one of one hundred. http://www.amoskeagauction.com/120/detail.php?id=39

TR,

Just curious, was the asking price at Tulsa comparable to the auction selling price? (factoring in the auctioneers commission)

Erin,

The gun would of been on display on Rock Islands tables as a preview at Tulsa. It was not for sale.

 Erin, It was on Rock Island's table for preview, most auction companies display at the big gun shows. If you are interested in a particular gun they will bring it to the show with the others. The estimate was 275-375k. Also on Saturday a 86 sold for $586,500.  A modern 1886 in 33 cal., Ulrich engraved and gold inlaid, WOW! Is this Stock Market money or collector's? The price realized for low to medium grade Winchester's did not go up. T/R

Thanks guys, I understand now...……. Some day I will have to crawl out from under my rock and get to one of the big shows. Locally a 100 table show is a big one, half of those tables are selling maple syrup, knives and other non firearm junk. Less than 2 years to retirement, then I can start stretching my legs.

Best,

Erin

 These high end guns keep right on appreciating. In 2010 Julia's sold a One of One Hundred for $374,000, now Rock Island sold this one for $805,000. Will the trend continue? T/R

I wish that trend would trickle down a bit to the level where I do business but I suppose that’s a common sentiment. I heard the 1/100 at Cody was worth approximately a million a few years back: this sale supports that theory.
