    Worth two nails and some bailing wire to hang it as a wall hanger.
    Sorry, bad humor......but alas true.

    The Blue Book notes that most Crescent specimens, mostly "house branded" are priced as shooters and have no collector value.

    LTS is essentially correct. in 100%, value would be $195.00, 95%-$95.00 and 70% only $45.00.

    Before you think you can shoot it check the chamber length and make sure it's 2 3/4.

    I would also only shoot low brass if it's 2 3/4
