I think the key words here are "sold a bunch" with the same number, that is what would drive up any sale or auction pricing, not so for just ONE gun alone with a "so called " 3 digit number, and as My wife says with ALL those new fangle digits these days, they are NOT "truly" 3 digit guns.......we ran into that years ago with the new models and they only had 2 digit prefixes and at the local shows were NOT an easy sale, , onloy when you made a consecutive match or a model match like the Buckeye guns and you had the same numbers but the different prefix, that Buckeye offered, if you bought the first one, you had first choice and the same number the following year...then again now you have a "premium"..........wish I had bought more of the Buckeyes back then in the mid $350 range,,,,damn............. :unsure: :cool::rolleyes:

I have sold a bunch of dad's stuff with 3 digits & prefixes, NOT 103 They always sold for a premium. Most if not all of the 175 guns went for a premium too and they went to probably 10 different buyers. I'll be able to test it soon with some 3 digit shot guns.
