This guy is a very serious Marlin collector, and he has been for many years. A second look will tell you that his collection is for real.
I guess if you have that kind of merchandise, you can ask that kind of price, and not be out of line.

Here's some documentation -
Next time you reference Bill Brophy's book and you see a picture of a fine old Marlin and under the picture it says (CF) - these are his rifles.

I would guess that at $100,000 a piece he has certain documentation, and it's more than a picture in Bill's book!
Guns like this are way beyond the collections I could even dream of owning. He's a very fortunate collector to be able to have three of such quality! Not sure I could part with such fine pieces, if I ever had the chance to own one!
