I sort of like the funky patchbox on the Adam Angstadt Kutztown rifle. The Kuntz rifle carving is spectactular and I would also agree the Albrecht attribution is a real stretch. I would say EK stated the reason for attribution pretty clearly.

These guns were at the Hartford show and if you asked you could handle them!!
Trouble is you could not focus on one.  :o
There was a J.P. Beck at a different table that was so good several of us
thought it might be a repro , but in the end it looked right!!

FYI
According to James Julia auctions, there will be additional views of each gun added to the web site about mid-September, when the auction catalog is completed.

What ever happened to the "Great Pineyone" ? Is he still on here under another name?  I never see his post anymore..

He's gone underground.  Not in the literal sense.  Just no longer on the forum.

Am I going blind, or is the A. Albrecht gun missing from the Serkin photo line up? Did someone have doubts about it? Far as I know, there is only one rifle signed A. Albrecht and a lock found in a barn in New England bearing his name, that are extant at this time. The Serkin gun must have been an attribution because the discovery of an unseen piece would set off sky rockets in the KY world.
Not heavily discussed here is the Sudjansky KY pistol collection; that is one of the top collections in the country. Surprised that he is selling them.

All of the Kentucky rifles and pistols have finally been listed in Lot #2. Only take a look when you have lots of time.

It does look like the Albrecht has been removed--or at least the attribution has (perhaps the rifle that had been identified as the Albrecht is still there but not identified as such any longer).

Several months ago I asked folks on the list whether the attribution made sense to them and everybody who wrote back, to the list and privately, said that they didn't see any grounds for the attribution at all.

I am not a collector and so may not understand the rules of the game, and I understand that buyers must beware. But it seems to me that auction houses should not be permitted to attribute rifles to famous makers simply because somebody who once owned the rifle (or who wants to sell it) identified them as such. I cannot get my head around why that isn't fraud?

In the past I've been able to save the pics from Julia's auctions.It would seem that the pics from the online catalogue (not the highlights page which I can save)can no longer be saved to my computer.Anybody smarter with computers than me have any tricks to be able to do this????While I usually buy one of their auction catalogue the pics are never as good as the ones online.

There's some fine guns there and more KY pistols than I think I've ever seen at one place before! Wow!
Mitch, I have the same problem, and can't save anything...

It's letting me save images. If you click on any item, another window opens with a series of detailed images of the gun. It is letting me save each of those images individually. At least it did on the few guns I tried.

I should say I am looking at this site (in case there is a different one associated with this auction):

The "Albrecht" is now a Jacob Metzer in the catalogue. Probably just a bookkeeping error that led to it being labeled wrong.

Mitch,

I haven't been able to figure out how to save the photos either from the general catalog . I can zoom them and do a print screen to get a large view or even print screen the individual gun writeup but cannot save electronically. If you figure something out, let us know.

Compliments of a member here I have a way to save the pics.If someone has a better way please let me know but here is what I got so far.In the auction catalogue click on the picture you want to enlarge it so it pretty much fills the screen.On your key board press and hold "Alt" button and the press "PrtScn" button.This copies the web page from your screen.Open Windows "Paint" and hit "Paste".This should paste the captured screen shot.Then crop what you want and save a a jpeg. It took a little fooling around to get it figured out but I am able to save really good pics this way.

Guys, I am just right clicking on the photos, and then choosing "save picture as" and sending it to "my pictures".
