    The rifle is worth in the neighborhood of $500. Give or take.
    The bayonet about $125.
    The papers on both add maybe 50% to the value? So call it $900 for even figures.

    The ammo is a nice little...

    Occamís razor would most likely tell you all you need to know.

    Any marks that should be there, but are not, have simply been sanded off by someone in the 76 years since this rolled off the line.

    Even without pictures I'm confident enough to tell you it ain't worth $1,400. Go to the CMP or even GunBroker. For that...

    $800 is a quite nice price for that shotgun. $1k, maybe $1,100 is about what Iíd expect to get for it if I had one.

    A fine shotgun like this one wonít really depreciate with non-abusive use.

    Looks to be in quite nice shape. The State of Texas stamp is interesting as well.
    I'd say it's worth somewhere around $70 or so - maybe more to a Texan.
