Henry rifle to star at Rock Island's June sale
A New Haven Arms Company Henry Lever Action Rifle is expected to top an upcoming firearms auction.
The 1860-made rifle has a $35,000 top-end estimate ahead of its appearance at Rock Island Auction Company's 2015 June Regional sale in Illinois between June 26 and 28.
The stock has a walnut finish, with floral scrollwork on the receiver.
"Henry rifles are always desirable, especially when they're finely engraved, such as this model," explains the auction house.
Rock Island has given it a "fair" rating, meaning some major parts have required replacement – a factor that will prevent it from achieving a higher sum.
The sale also features an 1873 Special Order Winchester Deluxe Model rifle with lever action. It has a $25,000 high estimate.
