    According to Forex.com, One GB Pound Sterling in 1910 would equal 3,241 USD today. So that nice set of three double rifles would set you back 729,225 USD today. Probably much more if it had been owned by spike.t.

    Neat seeing the old catalog. Thanks for posting it Edd.

    It also puts in better perspective accounts of hunters like Bell returning from a year in the bush and selling his ivory for 600 crowns.

    If I have time I am planning to stop in to H&H London next month. If I take in a copy of the catalog page do you think they will honor the 225 GBP price?

    i have seen a pair of crossover stocked shotguns i think at pauls showroom years ago, and it was very weird when you put them to your shoulder. def take some practice to get used to them.
