Webley Junior Valuation Please

She mentioned she may sell it. I replied, that as it was her fathers, and it was eating nothing and not costing anything to keep, she should hang on to it.
Anyhow, I said I would get her a rough valuation.
It's a Webley Junior. Circa 1940's. Smooth bore. Works a treat, and appears to be in very good nick. I will post a picture as soon as I find my Phone and download it.

I would not disagree with the £100 valuation but...not a lot seems to be selling.

She says she shot the pistol as a young girl in the 50's, and is certain her father will have bought it new in the 40's. It's purpose was as a rat killer/scarer, as they kept a lot of poultry.
Along with her siblings, they got into trouble for placing one of mothers garden gnomes on the swing and shooting it's cap off.
I realise the picture isn't to clever, (steam driven camera phone) but it is in rather good nick. No cracks in the grips. Screw heads haven't been tampered with. Blueing is still reasonably deep, and all insignia engraving is crisp.
Now, do I want a smooth bored pistol?

I realise this is an old thread (can remember it starting last year )
Here are three of my four Juniors, the other being just for spares really..
I paid £35 each from memory and have to say, they were very bargainous
Did the lady keep her junior?? as it was her fathers, I hope she did
