Re: What's a WWI 1911 Worth?
That gun is in terrible shape. It has been heavily rusted, wire brushed, then refinished. Further, at some point, its serial number was removed/obliterated and it was renumbered by an army depot or arsenal. ("X" numbers were used to replace serial numbers that had been obliterated.)
The current bid is $490 and IMHO it is probably not worth that, even as a shooter. It is certainly not worth any more.
