    value of scope

    My boss has given me some stuff from his fathers estate to liquidate. He has given me two Leupold 4x scopes to list on the board.
    A couple of questions since I am not sure what is important to list about scopes.

    What information do I need to list? There is not a whole lot of markings on these scopes.

    How do I determine the value of the scope? These two scopes could be 20 years old or even older?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    If older they are M8 scopes. IMHO A FAIR Value is 100-150$ If in good shape.

    If they are newer Leupold they are FXII and still worth about the same maybe 150-175.

    Even old Leupold scopes are worth ar least $100 unless they are scratched badly, dented etc. in my experience. Fixed powers are desirable since they are rarer now.

    They are clear and outside surface is not scratched and clear viewing through them.

    Contact Leupold customer service and give them the serial numbers from the Scopes. They should be able to tell you all about them.

    .

    The exact scope model is impressed into the thin ring at the front of the scope, around the front lens - which may be hard to see unless one knows what to look for.

    The thing about Leupold scopes is that Leupold will repair or replace one free of charge for the life of the SCOPE, regardless if it was bought new or used - so they hold some value.

    .
    Experience is a wonderful thing - It lets you recognize a mistake, when you make it again.
