I may be able to purchase an original hard case with the "velvet" interior, I think it's an FBI style case. I haven't seen it. I was wondering what a case like this would sell for in "good" condition. I don't need exact values to match a grade of condition, just a starting price.

$2000-$2500. That is what the last 2 asking prices are. And the people still have them.



EDITED
Sorry I had the 200 in there. It should have been $2k. smile.gif

ORIGIONAL CASES CAN RANGE FROM 600-3500+ DEPENDING ON CONDITION AND VARIATION. AN ORIGIONAL SWETNAM CASE IN GOOD CONDITION 2000-3000. A POLICE CASE WITH THE EAGLE MFG. SIDE LATCHES IN GOOD CONDITION 3000 - 4000. THE COLOR OF THE INSIDE ALSO PLAYS A PART. FBI CASES WERE A BLUE/PURPLE COLOR. THE POLICE CASES WERE USUALLY A VIOLET COLOR,HOWEVER THE COMPANY THAT MADE MOST OF THE POLICE CASES ALSO MADE SOME FBI CASES, THESE HAD THE VIOLET IN THEM AND ARE VERY RARE. THE FBI CASES WENT D/M/S(DRUM,MAG,STOCK). THE POLICE CASE IS M/S/D. IF YOU WANT TO YOU CAN CALL ME AT 1-814-598-2628. I WILL TRY TO HELP. BRIAN GUSTAFSON.
