I had a rough one that had a rare "acceptance/proof" mark on it, that indicated it was part of a pre-WWII Dutch or Belgian contract (can't remember which), and a collector traded me a near new 1903 for it. Rare is in the eyes of the buyer! This collector went on to locate an even more rare tin box that those contract guns were shipped in, and paid BIG bucks for that just to have a correct, boxed gun. Remember, finding a European purchased gun with box here in the US would be, well, pretty rare........
