Truthfully, I saw this gun for the first time in my life just a few days ago. A receipt found in its box shows that my uncle purchased it for $150 in 1960 (maybe 1980?... a photo is included below). It's definitely a departure from other guns in my father's collection, so I'm wondering if it was something he himself inherited from my uncle at some point.

Looking at its condition visually, I wonder how often it was ever used - it really looks pretty damn close to being "brand new". Even with inflation factored in, it clearly wasn't a high-end firearm, but I'd be curious to know if it has any value as a collector's item(?)...

1980 US made Minx. Earlier Italian made ones didn't have safeties.
They are great little guns-amazingly accurate.
Worth about double what he paid for it.

As stated these are nice little guns. In new condition with the bow and original receipt it could go as high as 400.
