That is a nice one Thanks for sharing :shock: :shock:weaselmeatgravy":2c8ihzg0 said:Here is a silver latch cased gun that I have, note the higher SN and the amount of wood left in the case insert under the butt of the gun (standard frame).
The gun you show does indeed appear to be a long frame (rarer). But neither the cardboard nor the wood case are likely original to the gun. Still, the gun should be well worth $1500 and the wood case another $500. Bonus $100 for the later cardboard box (as long as the gray end/eagle are a trick of the photo - those areas should be red).
Seems to me you better keep both...Enjoy your new purchase Better give that wife lots of XOXOs17tombstone":3qv9nix7 said:Will do. But talked the wifee into buying it for me for Christmas.
