the wording is Either/or not and.

To be recognized as C&R items, 478.11 specifies that firearms must fall within one of the following categories:

a Firearms which were manufactured at least 50 years prior to the current date, but not including replicas of such firearms;

b Firearms which are certified by the curator of a municipal, State, or Federal museum which exhibits firearms to be curios or relics of museum interest; and

c Any other firearms which derive a substantial part of their monetary value from the fact that they are novel, rare, bizarre, or because of their association with some historical figure, period, or event.

Was talking with a few gentlemen at the last gun show (and a couple of pawn shop owners with knowledge of C&R weapons), and they all agree that in the last year, the flow of C&R eligible weapons has slowed down bigtime. Not just the importation of them but people wanting to sell/trade them as well. The prices are going up a bit but for the most part stable from what I've seen and if you search hard enough, you can still find some gems to add to the collection but it seems that the days of going through barrels and racks to pick just the right one are indeed coming to an end.
