    Wow, that's enough to bring tears to the eyes! I'm very jealous.

    Outstanding! That is truly a thing of beauty. Regardless of whose it is, it would be a true joy to shoot it, handle it, and just generally enjoy it!

    Treasure hunting in your own house is freakin' awesome. :D

    I can't say I found something quite as nice as that but once I found 12 sterling silver goblets in my garage (old box a relative asked me to store). She told me to keep them. :)

    It belongs to the widow of a local FFL/gunsmith. She found it under her bed. I am helping her to appraise it and sell it. It's an exceptional gun and I thought I would share some pics of it here.

    For a real treat, last month she found this box.

    How much?

    That's really hard to say. There is book value and there is actual value. I have been looking to see what something comparable has sold for recently. The only thing I can find on gunbroker but both are fairly well used and without all the accessories and selling for ~$3,500

    You need to check old CMP auctions.

    Yes but i don't think CMP has had any in years. The 1987 recipt for this one says $1,025, but that's not much of a starting point.

    The shots of that beautiful M-1 only brought a smile to my face.:)
    Not envy, as I already have a Garand, but the photos increase the desire to acquire a second (only from the CMP), after they catch up on their work this spring.

    Orkan's funny raccoon photo was also entertaining.

    Color me jealous. I have an M1D with an aftermarket barrel and a SA receiver about 200,000 after that one, plus a reproduction M84 scope, but I only have $1300 into my setup and I can shoot it as much as I want.

    :)
