    I have a pair of Mauser Bolo broomhandles in 7.63 cal. that were professionally restored and relined by the Broom Closet. They were in fair to poor condition when I got them with barrels worn out. There is some slight pitting visible under the new bluing, mostly on the front of the gripframe.

    #1 is an early post war model in the 455xxx sn range
    #2 is a late post war model in the 575xxx sn range

    What are the values of these two pieces?

    It is rather tricky to place prices on pieces that have been restored. To the pureist collector, they would not want restored pieces. To the rest (about 95%!) of us, it would depend on how the restoration looks - i.e., if the legend and markings are still intact and crisp, etc.

    A real pretty restored piece with nice legend and markings would go $500 to $700. If it was original unrestored, in very good or better condition, $750 to $1,200.
