Television series and movies have always impacted popular culture and lifestyles. One example of this is the "Yellowstone" prequel, “1883,” and the surge behind investing in antique firearms such as those seen in the popular Western series. The historic accuracy of both TV shows varies, but most of the guns featured in “1883” are real firearm models that are highly collectible today. And, these unique firearms appeal to both art and history fans.
