Well junior if your gun was only one of six ever made by the master himself, you would probably be right....... But until boat anchors rise in price, I think you better just hold on to it... dry.gif

QUOTE (PhilOhio @ Feb 17 2005, 01:01 PM)
All kidding aside, that series of paintings, and the artist, are as much integral parts of American history as the Thompson. And the same thing is happening to their values for the same reasons and more. The paintings and our Thompsons can only increase in value, except for one possible wild card. It is very unlikely that the anti-art crowd will ever be able to ban, confiscate, and burn the dog paintings.

Are you kidding? Just wait til PETA gets involved...... sad.gif
