Go look at completed auctions on GunBroker. That will give you the best real world estimate of what they are going for.
I've done that already. The only issue I have with that is that bid shilling is rampant on GB and that skews the validity of the final values making it difficult to determine what is real and what isn't.Go look at completed auctions on GunBroker.

I don't advertise anything to my home. I typically only communicate via email and I meet at the local range. I have no time restriction on selling them, so I'm gonna do private sales to maximize returns. I don'think there is anything high dollar, but I've had some estimate the Mauser could be in the $1000 range, and the Black Powder pistol is from 1962 and appears to have been during a time when Gregorelli & Uberti Company was in business (which was only 4 years, 1959-1962) and is a rare find. Its said those reproduction 1858 New Navy Pistols were hand assembled and less than 3000 were made. I'm still researching that as I know absolutely nothing about black power. Other than those two, I see nothing worth more than $500 for any of them.Look up each gun individually to get an idea of the value. Ditto w GunsAmerica take the median value. You can sell the whole load at one time w the local gun shops but they will only give you 50 cents on the dollar. Convienence is expensive n honest men are hard to find.
As you've probably surmised, there are no high dollar value items there.
I wish you the best of luck.
PS: Be careful about placing ads in newspapers. Thieves may target your house - weapons sell well on the black market.
The Mauser Sportster, so I've read, was actually used back in the day for hunting purposes. This one has some interesting addons, I had a local gunsmith look at it and he said it has a good deal of hand engraving done, likely from the late 1800's or very early 1900's. They made them like that back in the day. Of course, I'm only just into preliminary research and have a long way to go. I read something last night about a Gewher or something like that, the sportster version produced for hunters and rich folks back then.Time, patience and research are your friends. Far too many take the expedient route for quick cash.
Uberti is a good name but still just a reproduction & yet - one mans repro may be another mans treasure for a myriad of reasons. (wish I had the holster - I'm too cheap to buy a new one - I have ROA but rarely shoot it - PIA to clean.)
Mauser - I am probably wrong but It looks like it was sporterized which usually buggers the value. Hope it's a special model which completes someone's collection.
