Default The Parker Gun 1895 Showroom Catalog

I have a Parker Brothers, 1895 Showroom Catalog by Larry L. Baer

There was a limited 500 edition reproduced in it's original form from the only copy known to exist. It is numbered (#399) and initialed by the author. It is in very good condition.

Does anyone know the best place to sell this book?
Thank you!

this is a very good place to sell it but you must join the PGCA first.
A good investment.

A few have sold on Ebay in the past few years. As i recall, i think around $300 seems to the going rate on them.

The 500 are all signed and numbered. Brian is right on in the average price range.

I do not think this is correct

I have one, a gift from a generous PGCA member, and it is neither signed, nor numbered. Perhaps it is an excellent forgery, which calls into question the generosity of the aforementioned PGCA member.

The number is located on the inside front cover on the short section of the cover. It is embedded in it, but very hard to see. The initials are easily noticed in blue ink.

I have never seen one that is not numbered. I have two right now and have sold a couple over the years.
