G Keiffer flintlock

I know this is going to be incredibly vague... but without pictures is there a general range you guys could give me on what a G Keiffer 50cal Flintlock is worth? I know its impossible without seeing it, but is there a general range in a used but excellent condition? Is this builder still around and is there contact info for him out there? I had no luck with a Google search. Thanks!

Custom or semi custom guns start at around $1000 and go up from there. You cant buy quality parts to build one for much less.
Without seeing its hard to say. I think i know who he is but never seen his work.
Some guys can turn a thousand dollars worth of parts and wood into 500 dollar guns.

If it's who I think it is, he puts guns at Dixon's periodically. Again, if my memory is accurate, the ones hanging from the ceiling attributed to Kieffer are priced around $1500-$2500, depending on particulars.

A friend of mine has one he had Kieffer build him, in 54-cal. As I recall, it cost around $1000-$1500, but that was probably 20 years ago.
