  2. An off the rack Purdey is 95,000 pounds sterling with classic rose and scroll engraving. It's on my post-lottery-win wish list.

  3. Read a story years ago about a Purdey salesman using a door on his Rolls Royce as a target to show off the pattern. Was very effective, it seems.

    My guess is easily north of $200K possibly in the mid 300's.
