Consecutive Nos?

I have a chance to pick up a couple of consecutively numbered Yugo 59/66 SKS'. Was not really looking for that, only wanted one for a shooter - not a safe queen, as I am partial to the M59s in the Yugo flavor and don't have a 59/66.

Looked around a bit to see if there were any real investment value in doing this, but not really seeing it. Seems to be a far too common carbine in that regard.

Opinions?

Not consecutive, but they look very nice.

Yeah, for a while there, IIRC, Samco Global, had the Yugo 59/66s that were "NIB" Consecutive numbered, to the point you could get a case of them... who knows how many people bought them like that for an investment?

Smile consecutive numbers value

Howdy,

As a rule, consecutive serial numbered guns are only worth the value of each.

The main exceptions are antiques and early 20th. century classics.

The last week I worked at a gun auction house I purchased a private collection for the house.

In it were two early Colt Ace , solid barrel - not floating, .22 caliber pistols.
They were consecutively numbered.
The value of the two guns together was at least five times what they would be if not consecutively numbered.

Why?
Early Aces are rare and very collectible.
Pre-war consecutively numbered 1911 guns, especially Aces, are seldom encountered.

I have handled late 19th Century Colts and Winchesters that were numbered together.
Antique gun collectors go bug-eyed when they find two guns that have spent a century or more together.

It is all based on demand.

One of our sayings was: "Yes sir, your gun is very rare, but not as rare as someone willing to buy it."

Keep yer powder dry,

John

Thanks from Willard and Rich D
