Anybody on here have any idea what an all matching crescent stamped 1891 Danzig Gewehr 88 with S stamp would be worth?

About $800 to $1000 using current online prices.

The S means the chamber was reamed so it could use an improved version of the original cartridge which uses a Spitzer bullet. I think the crescent moon stamp indicates it was for Ethiopia*.


Disclaimer: I may be wrong. I often am. (see below)

*Edit - The crescent moon indicates Turkey

That one was given to Turkey. The crescent moon and the farsi? On the rear sight give that away. I have been out of the loop for so many years that I don't know what they are worth anymore. Probably $500+ now.
