I believe it sold for $45k without buyers premium. A steal in my opinion.

Did it meet the reserve? Going from memory, but that is around the low estimate, if not below

It is a beautiful gun. It was great seeing it at the Vintagers.

A sign of the times when a gun like that does not meet the low estimate...

But the 23% BP will make things look a little better in future advertising... about $56,000.

After cash/check discount it is 20%. 23% for cards. At least that is what the terms on the website told me yesterday morning.

The best Parker any of us will buy for $56,000. We may see it again.

A sad day that this esteemed one of a kind (3 sets of factory documented barrels on a 1 of 5 pigeon gun) sold so cheaply...a sad day indeed.

It was said to me when I made reference to the documented duBray provenance that nobody even knew who buBray was until EDM brought his history to the forefront 10 or 12 years ago, so that provenance shouldn’t weigh very heavily into the bidding...
My arguement to that was that the duBray history is well-known (even if it is because of EDM’s research) probably by every member of the PGCA as well as many who are not members.

I will say only that I am shocked.
