This is from a gun collection, part of an estate with which I am helping a friend. Basically, I am trying to establish a fair market value for each item. That whole story is in another thread, if you are interested:

www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=1&f=5&t=216974&w=myTopicPop

This pistol is decribed by the owner's family as:



Pietro Beretta, Gardone V. T., Model 84B, Cal .9 Short, Italian, Patented Berben Corporation N.Y. - N.Y., Serial # B876XXX



My most current copy of the Blue Book places the value of this pistol at $295 for 100%, $250 for 98%, $225 for 95%, etc. As you can see from the pictures below, this Beretta is like new in the original box with papers - it appears unfired. I believe that it should rate 100%, but I am no good at assessing those percentages. I would appreciate any advice on how to evaluate/price this firearm fairly. I would prefer to avoid the hassle and expense of having these firearms professionally appraised, but I would like to be in the right ballpark when I establish the values.

I am thinking $295 for this pistol - does that seem fair?

Again, it looks like a fair price. Again, these guns are slow sellers due to their size & caliber. They're good guns for a female though, IMO.
