Estate Sale Pistol
The only firearm present was a Savage 1917 .32 caliber pistol. It came with a very nice box, although the pistol itself had some freckling and bluing wear. I checked it for the salespeople. They had placed it underneath a table waiting for my arrival. It was not loaded.
I asked how much the family wanted for the gun, and I was told $400-500. That figured. I guessed that with the box, the pistol is likely worth about $250. I'm not a Savage collector, nor a .32 shooter. The little pistol was slightly intriguing as a vintage CCW piece though. I wrote $200 on the back of one of my business cards and left it with the estate seller.
