  Did you see the smile on the auctioneer’s face? The only smile bigger than that is the seller or perhaps anyone owning a 1 of 100. T/R

$600,000 before the juice.  There’s a lot of spare change out there!

I agree.  Plus 15% so you add another $90,000 to that for a total of $690,000!!  

WOWSA!!!

How about that ’73 deluxe of “Captain Jack Crawford’S” at $625,000.00, or the engraved ’94 at $90,000.00, and the engraved 1903 at $110,000.00. I was bidding on 12 pieces , including Lot#1, (1886 c.c. 45-90), that went for $19,000.00. I didn’t buy a thing, but it sure made Me appreciate the ones I have a little more, especially the #5 Patterson I recently purchased. They told Me it was a record sale at over $24,000.000.00.  Just f.y.i. that’s about $40,000,000.00 Canadian , with the juice, taxes and difference in the money.

 The market for rare Winchesters is strong and RIA is pushing the top. They have a well oiled selling machine. My question is, will that gun sell for $690,000 next time it crosses the block. T/R

I thought the $300,000 bidder had lost his mind, I think even the auctioneer was surprised when it took off from there. I didn’t realize there was a 1/100 1876, imagine what one with some condition could bring.

Mike, and others, understand that this 1 of 100 is the earliest/first listed in the factory records.  When Ed Lewis wrote his book, this one was pictured, discussed, etc.  At that time is was attributed to a “private collection”.  At one time Ed had the finest collection of 1 of 100 and 1 of 1000 1873s AND 1876s.  He quietly divested himself of his treasures years ago and I expect someone else may have placed many of these back together.  I miss talking with Ed at Cody, as he was a good friend.  He pretty well quit coming when his close buddy, Chuck Shelton, died.  Two folks I do miss seeing!  Tim

What TR said.  A well oiled selling machine.  No one can explain why they can get these numbers that others can’t?????

There is a socal family that has several dozen 1 of 100’s, 1 of 1000’s or like a 1 of 1000 that will go on the market someday I believe.  Mr Anderson died a few years ago.  If RIA gets these look out.
