What does this mean?

Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a four section brass telescope of the second half of the 19th century, with the original cap and leather case. There are no maker´s marks or any other characteristics which would enable the appraiser to attribute it to a certain manufacturer. Anonymous telescopes usually sell within the price range listed. The estimate is based on current auction results
