I read an article recently about a guy that found a Finnish Mosin in the woods and restored it. I believe it was found somewhere in Canada.
Here is the link to the article:
and here is where more pictures are posted:
I realize that the Mosin Nagant rifles are really not worth very much, but I was curious if this particular rifle might be worth more than a typical "out of the box" Mosin since it has a story to go with it and documentation of that story. Also, what is the significance of the gun being Finnish?
Maybe this is more of a question for Antiques Roadshow, but I was just curious what this forum thought.
Welcome to TFF T; I don't think the story adds any additional value. Unless the gun itself had some historical significance, there isn't any reason that it should be worth more monetary value. It's an interesting story though; the Finns are considered by most to the be the best of the Mosin Nagant family.
