    I have just swapped some parts for an A7 twin carb head, these heads are like gold dust as there are so few remaining and it is in perfect nick :!!)
    So have you ever found gold dust?

    Yep! I bought a Stevens M47 single shot rifle in .22 caliber with D sights (all options) in VG condition with a mint bore for less than $1000. Since I collected primarily Winchesters at the time, and was looking for a rather pricey antique carbine in .38-55, I sold the Stevens. I went to a gun show, walked up to a dealer that I know, un-sleeved the gun and walked away with $2000 cash in my pocket. He probably made a 50% profit himself, but that's the beauty about being tied in with collectors who are nuts about originality and condition.

    I bought a box of junk in an auction for 50 cents and found a Joe Montana rookie card $200.
