so the apraiser just left and i have to have my wife pick my jaw off the ground. can anyone explain or tell me why the prices on alot of the old wins, mausers sharps, o3 a3s. basicly all the old weapons went up in price so much. some jumped so high i just cant believe what the guy had to say. my last apraisal was in 2005. one example are the smith corona A3-O3 30 06 jumped to over 3000 dollars oh and it has never been fired. oh and he left me a offer on some my collection for what he had appraised them at.so does anyone have any ideas.
