Wow!  $10,000 for a Commercial LGS with a mismatched Slide and Barrel seems just a little off.  Looks like a beautiful piece though.

Double wow!.   Still a desirable gun, but that price scares me.
Is it new to the data base?

Tha Simpson description say it has a non matching slide and barrel.  I am assuming they are talking serial numbers. That is a stupid high price for a non matching gun even if it is an lgs version.

When I first posted this I had missed that the barrel and slide did not match. There was another LGS HSC listed by another dealer in the 9K range. It sold but I do not know if the asking price was met.
I do not believe a mismatched example should be valued this high no matter how nice it looks. I do realize the LGS HSC is a very rare commodity but I would think real value in the 1-2K range IMHO.

About a year or two ago, we watched a crap HSc LGS sell on GunBroker for something like $4,400.  It had zero percent finish and was pitted like tank tracks.  It was down right horrible.  But evidently, supply and demand kicked in and the bidding went crazy.  I think you throw the book price out on these because the "gotta have" premium kicks in every time when they come up.  I watched a Mauser 1910/1914 sell at Rock Island Auction a week or two ago.   I think the price was $40,000 or $50,000.   Perhaps $60,000?  It went so crazy high, I was very surprised.  People must be looking at guns as investments, since the stock market seems to be iffy.

Just my take on these.

A knowledgeable collector might spring for a couple of grand on it as a placeholder like Burgess suggested.  For the uninformed collector, I guess the sky's the limit if he has deep pockets and hasn't read Burgess' quote, "aim small, mis small."  Anyway, that's the community we choose to be in.  As for me, I look forward to smiling and shaking my head when it sells ... and it will.

Jim,

Can you post a link to what sold at RIA for 40-60K. I would certainly hope it was not a 1910/14 pocket model?

Jim,

1536 is an extremely rare 1909 prototype, 1543 is a luger of average value (maybe the wrong number) and 3208 is a 1906-08 another extremely rare prototype. The first and last I would expect a 5 digit price for some where in the 20-50K range.

I am sorry.  I must have had too much rum in my coke yesterday.  I should have directed you to lot #3230 and not 1543.  I apologize.  It is a lovely cased Mauser with two matching mags.  That is the one that really got my attention.

Thank you for looking at these high priced examples.

#3230 is a 1912/14, it is a large 9mm prototype that saw limited production, less than 200 were made and this is a special one in a presentation case with deluxe grip. 1912/14s are usually in the 30K range but I would expect this one to go in the 40-60K range. These are not the relatively common pocket models that are readily available. I have a large picture of SN 151 right beside me on my wall. That is the only one I can afford.

Regards,
