Default Smith Corona 1903 A3

What would a Smith Corona 1903 A3 with a C stamped before the serial number be worth? From what I read there are only about 3600 of those but I'm not sure if it makes them more valuable. Anyone have info on this?

From what I've seen online it's worth roughly $900-$1200, depending on bore condition

If it were mine, priceless. I had a Rock Ola M1 carbine that was all original, had never been refurbished and I based my sell price on Blue Book and recent sales. Wrong, the rifle sold at auction for three times the book value.
Have your gun checked by a qualified gun appraiser.

The parts should be SC stamped. The FJA [Frank J. Atwood] inspector stamp on stock. Most all of the SC rifles had the 4 groove barrels.

Sorry I don't have it ... Yet. Saw one that they were asking 800 for just wanted to see if that was a reasonable price. Seems so. Thanks for input.
