I have a friend in Idaho that has an original 1895 Winchester High Wall in 45-70 for sale. He wants $1700 for it and it has drop-dead georgeous wood and is in great condition. Problem is that the crescent butt plate has been replaced with a plastic butt plate, so the originality has been compromised. Since it's value then is pretty much just a hunting or shooting gun, is the asking price too much or is it priced about right? Thanks, ciao.
