    The other one that cracks me up is, "I can't sell it for that, I have more than that in it." You learn in the stock market that what you paid is totally irrelevant to value.

    Too much we hear that or "It was in a collection for 40 years"... A statement that's about impossible to prove yet needs no evidence, alluding to originality. I put it down and walk on.

    Vet on D-Day

    I built up a Winchester Garand for an older vet several years back who said he always wanted a Garand since he used one in WW2. Two days later I get a call from a friend who had a table at a gun show. He said "get over he quick, I just bought an M1icon from an old Marine who used it on Iwo and brought it home in his duffle. Got it for $1200." So I went to the show and he handed me the rifle. I began to laugh. He said "what's so funny?" I said I "built" that rifle two days ago in my basement...but I bet all the parts were used by Marines in the Pacific in WW2!

    It's all in how you tell the story.

    I inherited my father's Webly revolver and it is in immaculate condition.
    My father jumped into Normandy as a member of Co. C, 1st Bn, 506th PIR.
    So I could sell that Webly with a 101st Airborne/Normandy connection.
    Big $$$$$$$$.
    Both stories are true but my father bought the Webly in 1972.

    It's all in how you tell the story.
