This Inland T2 high-wood fell in my lap recently and I'd like to place a value on it. The stock is very solid with no cracks but has seen some serious action. Couple of gouges and a very old well-worn chip in the butt...no rebuild marks. Bubba did chip a splinter out of the escutcheon well, but it's all fixable. Likely a good stock that can be restored.

Anyone care to suggest a value for this stock as-is?

How about the barrel band marks? Yours has lots of character. Here is one with no visible cartouche for comparison currently for sale at whatacountry.

A little nicer one than both of those is on Bungroker now asking only 225 with a buy now of 275.

Good info guys! I am posting some shots of the nose. It does have some slight band markings across the flats of the nose on top. I may go take another picture of the top, which I forgot to do, but it looks pretty good.

The first pix may look like an elongated gouge, but it's just crappy photography. It's more of a smudge.

Mine may not look quite as well in some respects...few more dings, but mine is not cracked at all...anywhere.

The cracked whatacountry one also hasn't sold for a price yet, but the uncracked GBroker one hasn't either.  Probably best thing is to do an advanced search on GB and ebay for sold ones then subtract the fees from that. Ebay fees, paypal fees and even ebay shipping fee equate to 14% of the price of a sale. GB is much less.

Well....I have $35 in this one, so I figure it wasn’t a bad investment.😁
