Thank you

I don't know to much about this weapon except it was done in the mid fifties .
I inherited it. and I'm trying to get a value on it.
I have never seen a more complete engraving in my life.

Just when you thought the thread was dead. Kurt Jaeger strikes

Just a few photos of 1954 Winchester Model 12 - 12GA engraved by Kurt!



I have no idea of the value.

I doubt that anyone has a WW II vintage rifle engraved by Kurt Jaeger, as he was drafted into the military and ended the war as a POW. He appareently ended up on the wrong side fo the Iron Curtain and slipped across with his wife. He died in 2003.

I have two weapons that were engraved by him. A Styer Mannlicher-Schoenauer Model 1960 MC 30-06 and a Browning Lightning 12 Ga. Superposed shotgun. The engraving is spectacular. My uncle was stationed in German and bought the guns at the Wiesbaden Rod and Gun Club. He purchased two 03-06's one for himself the other for my dad, and the Superposed. My dad almost had a heart attack when he got the bill. This would be in the late 50's and $500 was a lot of money.

The scope on the 30-06 is stamped with his name. I found this thread while trying to find another claw foot scope mount for the rifle. I would like a more modern scope, but do not want to damage to original. I'll post some images this weekend of the guns.
