If you’re a Fox fan, these two SxSs are going to make you drool. One’s a 16g and the other’s a 12g. Both look like CEs, and they’re coming to auction this Friday, May 20, @ Cottone Auctions.
Fox considered the CE to be a high-grade gun. In 1931, retailers asked $100 for it — more than twice the price of Sterlingworth with ejectors and a little less than a Parker GHE. The same year, a sidelock W. & C. Scott Premier cost $1,000.
Today, CE grade Foxes like the ones you see here are very collectible — especially the 16g. Fox made very few of them, and to see two with this kind of original condition is a treat.
