Sam Shiller, the confidant and agent for Cyril Adams, sent this advertisement for a 4 bore SxS under-lever Reilly shotgun SN 15625
(dated per my chart to 1869). This is George L's shotgun from this board advertised a few years ago at $50K! And this gun is almost unique. It was originally a pin-fire converted to center fire:https://www.invaluable.com/auction-...bore-sxs-double-rifle-in-292-c-045433c87
The starting bid price is $4K, almost unbelievable.
Here is the DGS line about the gun:https://www.doublegunshop.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=550059
And here is the 2009 thread when George L. bought it...look at the West Tennessee guy's insulting comments at the time - he was a jerk then, he was wrong then, oh well....no change.https://www.doublegunshop.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=181400&page=1
I'm wondering about George's health. Haven't heard from him for awhile...he was selling off his collection a couple of years ago after the death of his daughter.
