My expertise lies in Defensive Handgun Training as well as Arizona Concealed Carry Weapons Permit and Utah Concealed Firearms Permit related issues. I do not provide legal opinions or solutions. This area of expertise is best left to the legal professionals (Attorneys). Generally speaking, any technical questions on gun values should be directed to gun dealers and/or collectors.
