I have access to a Danish Rolling Block rifle. This one was made in Copenhagen under license. The metal and wood are in pretty fair shape, 80% or so. The barrel seems to have been vigorously cleaned... bluing down to about 50%. All corners are still sharp and the bore is very crisp.
A sized 45-70 round will chamber (seemingly) properly, so it may have been rechambered.

Any ideas on values?

Archie,

Actually, the Danish cartridge is SO similar to the American .45-70 that it is not surprising that a sized round will fit. The Danish Remington round is a hair shorter, about .10.

If you want to fire this gun, have a chamber cast done first.
