In vintage, rebranding depends. For instance very early vintage Fulton’s were made by Sargent. Their value is relatively lower than Sargent’s, except the #2 size, which will slightly edge out most others.

A Winchester however, made by Sargent will sell much higher.

I suppose the rhythm or reason is in rarity rather than anything else. Trends do play a role.

If Swartz got on YouTube with a Wards Master 1920 #4 and said how good it was, we’d see a substantial spike in vintage Wards Master prices, and I’d be pissed for the ones I practically gave away.
