I am currently selling some old 19th Century muzzle-loader guns, a samurai sword and a collection of Civil War letters-home. In each case, a quick check for the appropriate forums gave me some sound guidance to make the most of my offerings. I learned that the gun was an 18th century “Pennsylvania” style cap-and-ball farm gun that had been converted from a flintlock. It sold to a collector on there who was thrilled to get, it at a price I could live with to just “make it go away!” The letters went to a reseller in Boston after I learned they were certainly of interest to collectors of Civil War ephemera… again at a better and more fair price than I would have taken if offered
