I don't know what Brand Value would be placed on a Hussey compared to the mentioned best guns that's why I posted the question. I see what look to be nice Purdey guns for the same asking price as the HJH above.
From the HJH guns I see for sale, this gun is priced 200-300% higher than other HJH are listed for (except that they are 12ga). It seems as a guy would be better off buying a comparable priced Purdey than the HJH for the same money. That's why I mentioned the money I'd pay.

Another gun I saw 10 years ago at a dealer was listed for $19000. It hasn't sold and is now listed for $25000. Situations as this and the HJH just seem as the seller really doesn't care if it sells. They just make a good profit if it ever sells.

Where I live I never see high end shotguns in hand.


With a fine gun on his arm, a man becomes a sporting gentleman, both on the field and off.

Beautiful gun. Same dealer has two of them which I doubt any other does but they are choked slightly differently. Looks to be a composed pair. Friend of mine remarked the other day that right now he can buy big three name guns, in excellent condition,for 20% or less of the new replacement cost. And all three of the big names would gladly build you exactly that gun at today's prices. Box locks are an even greater bargain.

Sportarm was trying to build new guns under the Hussey name a few years ago. Supposedly they had bought the name and had the records. I don't if they ever did build any new guns. I've noticed people selling Hussey guns in nice condition are asking in the mid-teens. Hussey didn't make a lot of guns and probably very few 16 gauge guns.

Knock £10k off and they may move it.

As in my first post, if a BV1 (Boss, H&H, Purdey, & Woodward) branded gun is valued $10,000, BV2 (17 Brit makers so valued) would be $7,500, and BV3 would be $5,000 for the same quality gun. If the gun is, in fact, the linked gun which is 16 gauge, then you need to add a premium of maybe 1.25x to 1.5x (note that I haven't done a 16 bore vs 12 bore recently).

I would suggest that if this gun were a 12 bore, valuation would be CC6 (Shootable but needs some repairs and refinishing or refinished with barrels or stock replaced). Top end can't be more than CC5 (Minor repairs needed or proper restoration accomplished). BV3-OQ1-CC6 = $4,500 and BV3-OQ1-CC5 = $6,000. The about $25,000 price tag suggests BV3-OQ1-CC1 (Pristine = top one or two gun(s) of one hundred like guns) = $20,000 plus a 16 bore premium of $5,000 (1.25 X).

Note that value is a hypothetical number whereas price is an amount accepted by both a willing and able buyer and a willing seller.

Definitely restocked. Most I have seen were straight grip and I have seen a few (very few) prince of Whales grips bit I have never seen one with a pistol grip. I have owned one for maybe 10-years and doubt that I'll ever part with it. Seems like a couple of Hussey Imperials hit the market every year, priced from $7k-$15k depending on condition which seems like a fair price for what they are.
