    Bob, around here in that condition they are in the $275 to $350 range, but if there is pitting , then subtract a bit...most of them we see have the wooden grips but they can be either way, and hopefully the grips are NOT cracked or broken.......box and or paper work would 'help'... the older ones had a hinged black box,white label on the end......

    Dan is right on the money with his estimate. Unless the gun has brilliant Case Coloring and is near mint with the box it's tough to get too much more than that for the gun. If the magazine is wrong or the stocks cracked, the values drop off to the $200-250 mark pretty quickly....

    I have one, and it won't be going anywhere any time soon. Used to carry it as my church gun, but now its a range toy. She popped up on GB several years ago with a "buy now" of 100.00, which I couldn't pass on!

    Hey Leighton, what would you estimate your Colt to be worth? My wife's father passed one down to us that is almost exactly in the same condition as your's (though our's has a little scattered pitting) with the serial number 207xxx. The grips are identical to yours and in just as good shape. We have no box or paperwork, however it does have the original clip.

    Around here a rough estimate will be in the $250-$350 reange depending on the condition.
    Ultra clean, near mint condition might bring in $400, but it would sit on a shelf for a very long time until the right buyer walked in.

    I too have a .25 almost identical to Leighton's above, but slightly nicer condition... But, no clip. Please suggest a seller. Would love to try this little guy on the range.

    Great little guns. Sorry I sold mine
    When I was young my Mother told me I could be anyone I wanted to be. Turns out the police call that 'Identity Theft.'

    My 1908 Vestpocket has been ridden a little harder and hung up a little wetter. However, she still fires well -- a fun little handgun. It was manufactured the same year my father was born (1920), so like Leighton's, it ain't going anywhere! Other than vestpocket carry, does anyone know of a particular use, for which the 1908 and its predecessors were manufactured? I've heard a lot of railroad workers carried them.
