A cynic might repeat the story told at a gun show some years ago about an unscrupulous person who would take a bunch of fired .45-70cases of various vintages along on a visit to LBH, dump them on the ground and then pick them all back up and take them back to his shop where he would sell them to gullible tourists as genuine "45-70 cases picked up from the LBH Custer battlefield.
When it comes to guns in high demand, it is prudent to be skeptical. I believe that one of the auction descriptions mentioned that the late R.L. "Larry" Wilson was involved somewhere along the past history. He served time in federal prison for defrauding one prominent collector, and there have been a lot of rumors about other potentially unethical acts, so in this case be doubly skeptical.
When it comes to anything in the six figure price range (well out of my grazing area!)if you don't know your diamonds you realy need to know your jeweler!
This may be a great gun, totally authentic with a great story and indeed there at LBH for the battle. Or, maybe not. Place your bets, gentlemen, if you can afford to.
