Have No Knowledge of this Seller Nor The Gun But Thought it may be of Interest to the group.

Suggestion to All Members- when doing a link to a Auction:gunbroker etc. , that link will expire 90 days or so after the auction.

For purposes of posterity, i loaded the pictures into imageshack, a hosting service. Then i pasted the links in Forum Code into

this thread. Then the pictures are big compared to a picture from your desktop and they will remain in this thread for posterity.

If you want to know how to do that, send me a PM. Took me a big 5 minutes!

Looks all original but percentage of finish is disappointing

Lower is discolored and both show lots of wear.

 

I wonder what it would appraise at??

M17ap,

 

I had my Gordon book out for something else this morning, so I looked up your number.  It says the following for #1897:

 

"21A  Found with 21 barrel and no sight.  Re-blue, with 28 barrel.  Private collection, 1992."

The early 3 digit 21As are very desirable but any 65% to 70% Colt's with wood issues at $55,000 is a stretch in my opinion. Thanks for posting about NO 303.
