I have my late husband's collection of approximately 200 Daisy BB guns.   Could I get advice on pricing and selling the collection. Any information or advice you can give would be very much appreciated.

Hello Bern. A 200-BB gun collection might mean your husband had some trusted friends in the BB gun arena. That would be a start. You might be sitting on a treasure there, so my advice is to not sell anything until you get a good inspection & appraisal. There are good people in this forum who might have more specific advice in that line…… Good luck & sorry for your loss.

Hello Bern
Are you looking to sell the entire collection at once , or start selling them individually ?
There are some publications to use as guidelines for individual guns . Taking into consideration age , condition and rarity. You can also look at some resale sites such as gun broker and eBay to name a couple to see what kind of prices these guns are commanding. If you have compiled a list I would be very interested in seeing what’s available.
Thanks Doug

Blue book of air guns is one such publication you could use for some additional information.

Sit tight, don't rush, you need  someone  knowledgeable and honest to assess what you have. I hope someone on this forum can direct you to someone close to your area.

Sorry for your loss Bern! welcome to the forum. a Auction house with online bidding might help you  receive the best price for your Husbands collection.  if you could, Please tell us how you decide to sell them. I would not mind giving one or two of them a good home.... Prayers sent to you and your Family! Neal.....
