Re: Documented 1873 Carbine Value

Any premium for a firearm with historical association is related to the significance of that historical association. For example, if it's identified to a specific soldier, was he awarded the MOH or did he spend most of his service in the hospital fighting dysentery? If IDd to a regiment, is it a famous hard fought unit or one that saw no action?

Such distinctions can mean the difference between little to no premium to adding many thousands of dollars to the value.

Of course, this is considering that the documentation accompanying the firearm is solid.
