Thanks for the heads-up, but, IMHO, that is WAAAAAY too much money for the condition (which is ROUGH by OM standards) and, just from the pictures, of the tang sight, I can tell you that it is not 100% original.
Come down to reality on the starting price, say $20,000 or so, and you should likely have some takers.
OMs are NOT "rare", nearly all of the 477 made have survived, but they are almost always priced as if they were. Rare is like having 7 known out of 24 made. That (M1881 Long Range) was MINT and went for around $22,000.
No malice - my OM is in much the same condition - but I don't have those kind of financial illusions; paid $7500 for it in the early 1980s.
