Her late father had brought it back from World War II, and it stood in a closet in her home. She had no idea what it was other than a 68-year-old souvenir.* To the credit of the Hartford Police, they knew what the gun was, and that it was valuable. They told her the rifle was worth a lot of money and refused to let her turn it in. The woman plans on selling the rifle. She may get anywhere from $20,000-$30,000.
