What is the serial number? There is a huge difference in values between pre and post 64 versions.
serial number is XXXXX Magazine plate marked SUPER GRADE. Gun is unfired in
The Model 70 Super Grade African was made in 458 only. The front swivel base was relocated and attached to bottom of barrel, nearly all possess one or two visible stock crossbolts (usually covered with Bakelite). Most have all action components (bolt body, extractor, extractor ring and magazine follower) jeweled (i.e., engine turned), and have a rust blued barrel. The Blue Book values are:
Add 5% for the box and papers.
Add 20% to 30% for retail values.
Your new in the box rifle is valued at approximately $11,000.
While other Super Grades were disc. approx. 1960, the "AFRICAN" continued in that style until the end of all production. Normal attrition and collectors owning more than one contribute to extreme rarity. Retains considerable "shooter" value in lesser external conditions. Watch for cracked and/or repaired stocks.
I hope this helps you,
