Good evening, For your model 3 Schofield, the following current Blue Book values apply. Retail prices may be 20% higher:New in box/perfect --100% condition - $ N/A Mint condition --------98% condition - $ N/A Excellent condition -- 95% condition - $ N/A Very Good+ condition -- 90% condition- $ N/A Very Good condition ------ 80% condition - $7000 Good+ condition ------------70% condition - $5100Good condition --------------60% condition - $4550 Less than good - $2750 to $4175.This gun was quite often subjected to fake Wells Fargo markings so it should be checked by a professional appraiser to ensure the markings are original.
I am aware of the potential counterfeit W.F.&Co. markings and did have them authenticated by a pro. What is the date of the gun's manufacture?
By my info, the date of manufacture should be 1876.
How much does the W.F.&Co. stamping add to the value or is that already estimated in the numbers that you forwarded? Sorry, I should have asked this before.
The Wells Fargo markings are already calculated into that value range.
