Majority of serial numbers match. Can’t tell if bolt does. Pictures look good. Never heard of this maker. Learnt something new today.

What would be the most it would be worth to bid on?
Made in 1917, are these same strong design as a K 98 K?

That rifle is not a Gew-98 anymore . It has been converted . It's value would be determined by who did the conversion .

Not a set price. Purely a bidding war. I bid to $300. Then it got nuts.
