Help a 100% Disable Vet

This is a shot in the dark but here goes. I'm trying to track down some weapons that were sold privately and I'm trying to track them down. I won't get into how I had to sell the weapons but suffice it to say the Veteran's court here in Pa. really helped me and my legal problems. I'm now legally allowed to purchase weapons again and these are heirloom weapons and I'm willing to pay double what the owner paid for them. Here are the weapons.
1967 Mod 70 Win. 270 Ser#751910
1967 Mod 70 Win 308 Ser#859093
L.C. Smith Double Barrel Field Grade 16 ga. Ser# Unknown
1967 Rem 870 16 ga. Ser#977170W
Yes I've contacted the ATF and no help there.
My local Police are reluctant to help unless I grease some palms. And the dealer they were surrendered to is no longer in business. Needless to say any help would be greatly appreciated. I also surrendered about 30 other weapons but they were only for investments and really don't care about them. The weapons were wholesaled by a dealer to an auctioneer. I was compensated by the dealer when he wholesaled them so it wasn't a total loss. Just heart break for these 4 particular weapons. Thanks from a 100% disabled vet.

When were they sold, forfeited or placed on auction?

If I were you, I would post this on as many different places as I could:

https://www.24hourcampfire.com/ubbthreads/

https://winchestercollector.org/forum/

along with the myriad of facebook groups like Hunting Pennsylvania and PA Black Bear Hunting.

Best of luck.

What does being a 100% disabled vet have to do with anything. You lost my interest when you threw out the local police wanting their palms greased to help locate the firearms, I don't buy that for a second. It appears you did something illegal that caused you to have to give up your firearms and are withholding the reason.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

They were surrendered as part of my acceptance into Veteran's Court. As I mentioned when they were wholesaled I was paid whatever the dealer got paid.

Woods Walker it's none of your darn business why I lost the weapons. I suffer from PTSD and depression and flipped out. That's all you have the right to know. I spent 23 yrs in the Army and I think I deserve a little help from our government. And I thank Montgomery County for Veteran's Court.
