Re: Julia Officer Model failed to sell

John, I see the problem with it not selling at the estimated price is that the condition shows it may well have never been sold and remained in storage until the remaining rifles were sold off to Bannerman after the turn of the century. By 1885 any officer that wanted a rifle had bought one already. The sales list of OM sales show very few of the 1885 hundred rifle sold. My early Om shows wear but care and I would rather have it. OM sales have been in the 15-20K range in auctions I have followed the past few years. Just my opinion bu this might have sold for around 30K if listed at 25-30K
