Thanks for the heads up Jta5er. I liked his description. This is one of the few left on my wish list.

Your welcome it was your first year straight stock pics that motivated me to hunt for this 16ga.
I bought 1910-12 gun on gb, luckily everything was original except forend was 2 3/4” replacement. I really enjoy 2 1/2” 16ga brownings

This person sounds like one of us. Anybody here know who the sellers is. I want it real bad but I have been spoiled by finding them in the wild and paying $200 - $500.

I did go nuts on my high grade first year A5.

Goad it is not me.

However, mine is in Eric Ward's possession and will be in the Wards Collectible's May '21 auction.

I don't want to seem biased on condition so I will post a few pictures to compare to the Gun Broker gun.

Will

He does sound like us. The San Antonio location should be a clue.

I think he’s being optimistic on the price.

I emailed him and commended his “description” and asked permission to use his pics, he consented.

Will, thanks for posting. No bias, yours is in premium condition. The price is subjective on these. I believe there are informed collectors well beyond our circle. The price will be driven by scarcity, collector desire/need, and financial resources (deep pockets).

I still get a thrill out of the “unmarked” and “ghost” finds under the radar due to uninformed buyer guide prices.

I also get a thrill when these nuggets move from the stream to the jeweler. Part of my motive for the “date guide.”

PS
Will, the 1909 you put me on is still the centerpiece in my collection next to my 1936 Sweet 16 “Test Market” find.

Well, the auction ended with no bids. It’s re-listed, now at the bargain price of only $2,995. Over $500 in savings!
