Picked up a K98 a while back, whats it worth?

This is it, its got the yugo crest on the top, Mod.98 *does not have 48 on it*
front sight is Eagle with 18 under it. Bolt has Eagle 25 on it. Serial# matches on stock, reciever, and floorplate of 90**. Bolts serial # is 84**. Any idea what year the Eagle 18/25 are? and whats the value roughly? Thanks!

It's been drilled and tapped for a scope mount, that reduces value somewhat. Prices on the Yugo M48/98 or MOD98 has gone up in the past year. Even with the drilled receiver I would say at least $200. It does look nice and may bring considerably more on Gunbroker.

I picked this Yugo MOD98 up a year and a half ago for $167+shipping off GB, I think those prices are long gone.

Yeah when I bought it a year ago I payed 200 at a pawn shop. Had to get it, had just turned 18 and SO wanted my first gun to be from ww2 haha. But it was in HORRIBLE condition, barrel was a rust color. Somebody had *tried* to stain and laquer it, but they did it poorly, some spots were red, some were brown, some were green. couldnt even see any wood grain at all.
