"Possibly never fired", yet the ejection port sure shows some obvious finish anomolies - almost like someone "refinished" or touched it up.

Price so far is quite fair, be interesting to see where it ends up.

Definitely looks to have been fired, but not very much. Especially for a 50+ year old rifle. Very nice!

Def interested to see what this G brings as the last one on GB brought close to $9200 following a hellacious bidding war. Market is ALL OVER THE PLACE now more than ever.

This. Makes it hard to valuate a rifle for a straight up sale, and I don't much like auctioning good stuff.

This.
People say all the time, want to know what it's worth, auction it off. BS.

An item has two values: 1) Commercial value, and 2) Sentimental value.

Commercial value is the price that someone is willing to pay. Although not perfect, one of the best ways to determine that is an auction. Multiple people determining the items value, sometimes emotion influences the final price.

Sentimental value is wholly based on emotion and it has no material value.

So, what is your method for determining value?

So, what is your method for determining value?

First, I use experience and research to determine what prices the item I want to sell have sold for in recent history. This never involves auction sites.
Next, I determine if the current prices are in line with what I want for the item and set my price accordingly.

On some occasions when I just want to move an item or I just want to flip it I'll set my own price for small or no profit and let it fly.

If I have emotional attachment to an item I simply don't sell it.

The tool roll in the auction is configured exactly like the one in Blake's The FAL Rifle big book, on page 362, fig 406.

Does anyone recognize the tool to the right of what could be the butt support slot chisel(OREA130)?

denny, I don't think there is a punch missing, the slot to the left of the three existing punches looks to be for the gas regulator spanner wrench (OREA107) according to the fig 406 pic.

Also bigfarebob, it doesn't appear to have a slot for the gas cylinder bushing spanner (OREA108) like in the picture of the one below the oil can (OREA2094/94)

Comparables is another method, only if there is a reasonable sample size. Most of the items where people were told to go auction, either hadn't had a comparable sale in a long time or no known recorded sales.

If you are purposely ignoring a major data source for "value" then your research will be seriously flawed. Purposely making decisions with flawed data needlessly interjects emotion, which again has no material value.

Third highest bidder dropped out at $7K. Hard to say how much is value, and how much is competion when only two bidders run a price up?
It was the same bidder that won both the GB auctions.

A history of auction prices will tell you what the item isn't worth. For example, if someone tells you a widget is worth $600, yet the auction history shows all SOLD widgets (in any condition) selling $250-$450 ($450 is the highest recorded sale price), it is safe to assume that the widget is not worth $600.
