    Diana tinplate worth 200 ?

    Sorting out stuff for the Kempton races, not decided on what to take. One contender is this 1930's pistol, bought at Gamages London for 11/6d. In box with cocking handle and pellets. It is the best condition one I have ever see, is it worth 200 now ?

    That looks lovely, ive one that my mum owned still works but dented and rough, used to fire those horrible darts out of it into a dartboard as a kid, terrible what we did as kids, gun abuse!
    good luck with your sales.

    Probably worth more like 300 with the box and cocking tool, Baz?

    In British slang an anorak is a person who has a very strong interest in niche subjects.

    Yep, reckon Danny has called it right, so maybe my 250 was a bit on the lean and mean side ?
