Re: Ethan Allen Revolver
A good example of the fact that old does not mean valuable. There is simply not enough collector interest in those guns to bring up the prices. Nor is there a market. The prices given in the guides are retail prices, what a buyer might expect to pay, not what a seller might expect to get. Sale to a dealer would not bring even half the guide price. Sale in any other way for a single gun is iffy; a buyer might come along tomorrow or ten years from now.
Example: I have had a couple of collector guns on consignment at a local store for over two years. I am not concerned; I don't need the money and maybe some day they will sell. But trying to get an immediate sale is tough, and I feel for you.
