Unhappy Krieghoff questions?

I bought a 1936 dated Krieghoff. It is mismatched on the side plate and the toggle train. It is proofed Eagle L/2 and all other parts bear the Eagle 2 proof. The good news about the mismatched togle is that it is a complete Navy toggle train with original finish! So the question is as a mismatch without the Navy toggle what's it worth? I put another DWM toggle on the gun in place of the Navy. I was thinking that it ought to be worth $500-700 as a rare mismatch. [img]biggrin.gif[/img] I will try to add pictures tonight.

Doug, I don't know if there is a thing such as a rare mismatch....

OKay, I do believe that, if most of the mismatch is there, meaning you have one small part wrong, I for one have trouble calling it just a [quote] shooter <hr></blockquote>

So that said, you have a shooter, that like you said has some interesting parts.

I would keep the "navy" parts and make up a pretend Navy.... Or sell the Navy parts on e-bay and make some okay money, just on those parts.

I think value on a shooter is VERY judgemental. I wouldn't want to pay more than $450 to $600, which is a big margin, but if I traded or sold something and you had something I wanted, then I'd give you more. So, since this is a Krieghoff frame and no toggle that says Krieghoff, it'd be worth whatever to Bob the knickerman that wanted it?

Hi Doug...

Ed is right on the money with his reply, IMNSHO. Unfortunately - a mis-match is a good shooter, regardless of some of the parts that it contains. To give you and idea of values - recently a sideframed inscribed Krieg - which was a forgery - was sold for $850, and it was marked as a fake to not confuse collectors in the future about its authenticity.

So - both Ed and you are about right with your comments about the value of this piece - it's a shooter and doesn't hold any collector interest.
