CONDITION: Very good. The iron surfaces display a silver gray patina and with
some minor surface pitting and marks. The brass has an attractive “mustard yellow” aged patina and a few dings and small “casting sand pits” from the original foundry process. The stock is also very good with a hand rubbed patina, cracks at the ends of the saddle plate and ahead of the comb, and some light handling marks. The action functions very well. This is an extremely rare opportunity to acquire both a historical and evolutionary significant rifle only recently removed from the hands of Jonathan Browning’s descendants.
Estimate: 50,000 - 75,000
