Greg, just by way of comparison: Per the A&F catalog from 1936, a 25 sold for $325. A Parker CHE with a single trigger went for $282, a Fox XE for $200, an Ithaca 4E Skeet with single trigger for $166, and a Browning Superposed Midas Grade for $305. Other than the British guns and the Sauer Deluxe, the Francottes were the most expensive European guns A&F handled.

If you want to look at a very nice 25E 20ga, go to www.schwandtclassicarms.com. I've held that one, and it was mighty tempting!
