Talk about extraordinary. Rock Island Auctions has this incredible set of Holland & Holland Royal double rifles coming up in this week’s sale:
The guns are from 1954 and consecutively serial numbered: 35248 – a 7 M/M Magnum Flanged , 35249 – a .300 H&H Flanged, and 35250 – a .375 Magnum Flanged. They’re all original and they come cased with just about every option imaginable: original scopes & mounts, extra sets of locks, ivory-bead front sights, a full compliment of cleaning accessories and more.
But while they’re certainly nice, I just can’t convince myself that they’re worth the amount quoted at the low end of the estimate – $90,000 a piece or $275,000 for all three. We’ll see if anyone disagrees with me.
