    That was what we were hoping someone would help establish. Looks like it would have to go on open bidding and set it's own price.

    Jim & Keb,

    When I saw the OP I thought "yea, right!" But after seeing the photos I think it Is right. The trouble is, there are a lot of fakes out there so folks are cautious. . This one really seems legit.
    For approximate value, I'd contact maybe Skinner's Auction house. They're pretty good on items like this. Send the best, clearest pictures you can.

    Good luck!

    That is a very nice pair. As others have said, pricing would almost have to be set at time of sale. However, you mentioned family heirloom, so if there is some provenance that could help a lot. There are so many reproduction powder horns around most collectors are very cautious. Interestingly, a fair number of the repros are even from the late Victorian era, as there seemed to be a bit of a romantic "flintlock revival" around then. This one looks correct and I would say that because it is very simple and plain; most rifles/muskets and powder horns in the colonies at the time of the Revolution were practical tools not fancy. Folks trying to fake up a Bunker Hill provenance on a horn would make it fancier, with more elaborate scrimshaw and such, but this just looks what it is. If you used B Hill reference as a marker to set the date of the horn, it has the nice age patina one would expect of this era. Is there family provenance? Really nice pieces! I agree that if you got some good lighting and a good camera and sent clear photos off to an auction house specializing in such items, youwould likely get a good appraisal.

    Cheers
