Every time one of those are shot, mine just gets more special... It will probably be another 10 years before I see an appreciable value increase.
I got my BO version 3 years ago for $180 delivered from KY imports with a "Cherry Importers" mark on barrel with a complete set of new condition accessories, even the cleaning kit was new. Yes the stock has a few dings from storage, but the wood is amazing. The corners are crisp and sharp.
Once they have been fired a few times they are no longer unissued mint condition. IMO, they become excellent condition, used rifles.
IMO, I would say $250-$300 for real unissued with all of the extra goodies. That being said, Mitchel's is hawking them for $399 and up and supply and demand by region and internet influence that value also. Used ones would be $150-210 that I have seen with no accessories. I have have three other M48's that are just plane range-hound shooters with real nice bores. I like them all and others may have a totally different outlook for these Yugo mausers...
I agree with the greenman on accessory prices that I have seen....
The Greenman seems to have paid a very decent price for his two. When did you get those Greenman and are they unissued and unfired? Did the accessories come with them.?

well....thats my 2 cents... not worth as much as a "real" collector's nickel... but they are shiny...
