Original Liberator Hand Gun Prop
GaryWales
Back in 1990, I purchased a Liberator Hand Gun prop at the Bonhams auction of BBC paraphernalia. There was only one hand gun but there was also a Scorpio gun and a series one bracelet.

I've had it safely stored for many years (of course!) and it still works (lights up) when batteries are put in the grey screw-secured case. I can't determine who wore/used it as there is nothing written on the belt or leather.

I have the auction book and auction card number as provenance and I paid 850 (with auction commission) at the time which I think was quite steep - but I *really* wanted it.

I can't see that original props have gone up in value that much - unlike, say, Star Trek props etc. so what would you think the value would be in the market, apart from 'priceless'. Only asking - not interested in selling and this would seem to be a good place to ask.

Pictures?

Value is whatever a buyer is willing to pay for it.

You could list on ebay with a huge reserve just to found out how much someone would be willing to pay otherwise we would all be guessing.

Hi Gary Wales! I collect original Blake's 7 props and costumes. Prices not gone up? I think you'll be mildly surprised! Wink

If you were thinking of selling it today, you could quite happily add a "zero" to your purchase price. Jenna's gun (her name was written on the leather) was sold a year or so ago for a five figure sum, so I would imagine this would be around the same sort of price. Would love to see some photos!

Right, I'm starting work on that time machine, so I can outbid you by a tenner! Grin

I've been offered much much more than I originally paid for my 3 original B7 costumes, my Dr Who props and artworks have similarly doubled, tripled, quadrupled in value, according to offers I've had!
Just depends on what people are willing to pay
