    Man, that list. Looks like they have at least one of everything.

    That's a whole lot of hyphenated calibers. If it was close I would go just to see them in person.

    If I can I will take a couple of pictures tomorrow during the preview. There are a couple of Savage 99's there that have peaked my interest but I don't know what kind of money they might bring. We shall see.

    195--
    195

    Marlin Model 1894 32/20 Rifle with 24" Octagon Barrel, Full Mag, Special Order Schutzen Butt Plate & Tang Sight, No Dove Tail for Rear Sight, Medallion on btm of stock, good bore, SN:70296

    196



    my grandfather had a Ballard in 32-40 with the same butt plate, gran ma gave it away to some visitors that helped themselves to most of the antiques in her house shortly before she passed,
    my uncle was more than just a bit upset when he found out, visitors were some long lost far off relatives that hauled butt to some yankee state never to be seen or heard from again.

    I bet his wasn't like the #195 at auction. The #195 small Farrow schuetzen buttplate has unfortunately been modified by someone who chopped the prongs off it. Sad that such a rare optioned rifle's buttplate was destroyed. I bought an 1881 Marlin decades ago with the Farrow buttplate and some idiot had chopped the prongs off. I eventually found a reproduction Farrow and cut the prongs off it, and brazed them back on the 1881. I was planning to put the repro buttplate on it, but I would have lost the factory serial number. So cutting off the prongs, and brazing them on did the trick.
    The Marlin Farrow buttplates came as both steel and brass, and were nickel plated usually. It looks like #195 iis a steel version modified. Steel would be even easier to repair, and repro steel Farrow plates are still available.
    #195 should look like this one on my Rigby Ballard:

    You could spend hours digging through all of those pictures. I would go just to see them if I was not so far away. And didn't just buy an XLR in 35 rem
