If I were to consider it , I would drive or fly there . They have advanced viewingPretty much useless pics for the details you want to see on one of these.
New ad does state grips are not the best .
That is a good sign and the bluing looking thin-crappy is a good sign also.
Only took me 35 years to find a 1943 I was comfortable with .
Not saying bad or good- need a MUCH CLOSER look .

Having worked for James Julia Auction before they sold out, I was privy to some internal knowledge of auction practices. I'm not sure that Morphy's would have followed the same pattern, but below is how Julia's would have proceeded with a low bid.Sold for $17,220 (including buyer's premium). Seems much lower than expected. Anyone know why?
One never knows which way an auction will end. It received only 4 bids.Thanks Martin. That is interesting to know how it all works. But, still, even if that is how it ultimately found a price and sold... why would this rare gun not have achieved the minimum bid? Is there something I'm missing?
I can almost be sure I know who owns that pistol now . I will ask next time I see them 😉One never knows which way an auction will end. It received only 4 bids.
