OK... here's my list with comments on a few - I plead guilty to collecting.
About 10% are "scrap" requiring sleeving etc.
About 10% are going on the market to make room for others.
About 20% are decent and functional but in the long run intended for engraving projects.
Only about 10 to 20% would be considered best guns.
They are a collection of "gumnakers" from the Northeast of England.

Most of mine are rifles but I have two go to British shotguns and one project shotgun.

12 bore H&H royal self opener is my main shotgun
H Clarke 12 bore BLE 25" bbls, Churchill rib 6lbs even, grouse gun
I have a Wesley 12 bore fancy back ble that is a personal project gun.
my double rifle is an A Henry SLNE in .360 2&7/16" BPE
H&H in .30 Super on a PD Farq, only single built in this caliber
Westley 1897 falling block, extra finish Best in .256
H&H woodward project being re-barreled in .375 flanged Magnum
Lancaster cased best percussion .50 cal oval bore

Shotguns were my main interest but once I bought my H&H I kinda stopped looking at them.....cray I know but that one scratched my itch.

Mine's like the bargain basement after seeing and reading about the lovely guns on here so far.
W.H. Monk (Chester) 12 BLNE.
William Richards (Liverpool) 12 BLE
W. Griffiths (Manchester) 16 BLNE
Lee Enfield (BSA) 1917 sporterised .410
(All Brummie guns smile )
The Richards needs work and the Griffiths is well past its best, will probably end up a deactivated cutaway action wall hanger, shame really as it's got Ford barrels, sadly, shortened and pitted to hell.
