Have come across a Parker VH 20 gauge-26 inch barrel in excellent condition. The case colors are 95 percent and the bluing on the barrels is 99%. It has a dogs head buttplate. The seller will guarantee the gun is original and also will let me get it checked out by Parker experts before purchase. Seller wants around $10,000. Going price or too much?

I would go to the Parker Gun Collectors website and they will be able to provide more insight.

http://www.parkerguns.org/

I am no expert on Parker value, but just from perusing on the various sites my gut tells me that is too high. Yes, the 20 gauge carries a premium, but I do not think that high. The VH grade is also one of the lowest grades.

If you have it inspected by a Parker expert, they should be able to tell you its value as well.

Sounds way to high for a non ejector gun. I was shown a gun very similar to what you are describing a couple weeks ago from under a dealers table at a large gun show. I collect high condition Parkers but this one just looked too good so I remembered the serial number and called a friend of mine at a refinisher in New York he confirmed the gun had been through the shop recently along with another gun of a different maker and same gauge which had been upgraded. One of the other guns he pulled from under the table was the same make, gauge and grade of the upgraded gun. This little bit of information sure opened my eyes to this dealer who swore these were factory original rare and high condition guns. Be very careful out there before spending 10 grand.

Way too high for a VH, I mean out of the ballpark high! My opinion.

I would gladly pay $3000.00 for a 20 gauge VH with original 95% case and 99% blue any day of the week. If you know where one is -please let me know!
