Historic Investments, General Category:

Our consignment fee, standard in the firearms industry, is 20%.  As you may note from our website, our photography is superb!  We handle all the questions, make sure all the paperwork is in order, and ship your items securely.  Your item gets sold at a fair price that is discussed in advance and you get a check within 30 days of the sale with an accounting statement.  We want to make this a totally transparent and trustworthy process.  You can deliver your guns to us directly or ship them to our shop address.  If your collection is large enough, we will be available to inspect and pick up your collection.  After your items have been with us for 60 days, you are free to retrieve any guns that have not been sold or on hold.

The above is true for all items with a market value of over $1000.  If lower, we are happy to group several items to meet the minimum threshold or place in the "field grade" category that carries a different sales structure. 

Historic Investments, Field Grade guns:

These desirable but lower grade guns are offered at a reduced price point with fewer pictures and a different marketing strategy. If the value is over $1000, the 20% consignment fee remains. Lower value items will arranged for a group sale to reach the $1000 threshold. If there is no sale in 60 days, the listed price will automatically be reduced 10% per month, a process that will remain in effect until the items are sold. Anytime after the first 60 days, any unsold items may be returned at consigner's expense. Should the consigner wish a more immediate sale, we would consider an outright purchase or list the items on a general auction site, such as Gunbroker, with a penny start and consignment fee based on the sale price.
