There are folks that collect famous shooters guns and to one of them, price might be no object. To a regular collector/shooter, the name has no value at all and they would only look at the gun as a gun.

In this case, I would think that marketing and time frame would be the biggest factors. An ad in the local Podunk Tribune will not reach the right audience. One of the better auction houses in a well promoted catalog could bring double or triple the value.

Also, if you need to sell today as opposed to waiting a few months can also negatively impact the value.

So, all in all, there are reasons why guns like these will have estimates all over the board.
