    Have an 1896 Smith and Wesson Target Model with letter from Roy Jinks. Does anyone know what it's worth? Mechanically sound finish poor.

    I have seen two of those, one as a picture on a web site, one "for real" at the Baltimore show. Both were in rather poor condition, and appeared to be hard used. IIRC, the asking price at the show was $1000, but from what I saw there was not a lot of interest. I think it might have been worth double that if in near top condition, but that one wasn't. My WAG as to what yours might bring, would be $500, but I will not mind being corrected if anyone has a better figure.

    The target models are scarce, and the Blue Book doesn't even mention them. The SCSW mentions them as being rare, but has no illustration.
