I know where one of these sets is located. I'm not sure about the original box/docs but this exact set in the presentation case. I'm waiting to see what this auction does before I decide if I want to buy it or not.
With the price of Pythons going through the roof, this might be a nice set to have.
I have to agree Guy. I see far to many cased sets languishing at shows with prices below what some of them sold for originally. This set will probably hold its value, because of what they are, if the selling price is within reason, which I don't expect it to be.
These are beautiful, but for me they are not my type of collector guns. If you have the money to buy them because you like them, and won't miss the money, have at it, and best of luck.
Artifical scarcity items (items created to be "collectors items") do not appeal to me. They do to some. I agree that often they do not bring their original cost. Like someone said in regard to the many Winchester Model 94 commeratives, they should have kept the boxes and thrown away the guns.
