I surfed onto the TV show "Antiques Roadshow" today, and this guy had two Sharps rifles, a straight breech and a slant breech, up on the little display board. He also had a six bullet gang mold as well. They were all in outstanding condition. During the little conversation they aired, the owner happened to mention that he "loves guns."
The appraised value of the straight breech was $4000, with the slant breech going for $3000 and the bullet mold was appraised at $4000! The appraiser said that there just aren't many of them around anymore.
