In my experience there are three things that matter most in Antique Guns, Swords and Militaria. Condition, Condition and CONDITION. Buy the best quality item you can afford.
MR SOPHIA, I HAVE A OLD AMMO BAG MADE OF LEATHER. I HAVE BEEN TOLD IT COULD BE FROM THE 1700’s. I WILL BE GLAD TO PAY FOR YOUR APPRAISAL. WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE IT IN WRITING. ALSO DO YOU CONSIGN? WHAT ARE THE TERMS. I CAN SEND YOU THE ITEM OR IF YOU THINK YOU CAN GIVE AN ACCURATE APPREASIAL WITHOUT THE ITEM. THANKS
