Why is that one $1200? Is it a hagher grade or something?

1948 Super Grade in 257 Roberts. He says the caliber is 'harder to find.'
The wood wasn't always as highly figured on the older ones as on the current High Grades and Super Grades, but still nice.

This is Fionn MacCumhail (Finn MacCool). Made in 1939, and used on at least two African safaris that I know of in the late '40s and early '50s. It originally mounted a Lyman Alaskan scope (which I got with the gun) and has a Redfield peep sight mounted under the scope as a backup.
