Would like to get an idea of what this 1979 Colt Nickel Detective Special would bring, should I decide to sell it or trade it. I bought the gun (paid a lot of money for it) but it is way too nice to shoot. It is more for a collector and I do not believe in Safe Queens. The gun is in absolutely beautiful condition.

around $600 or so like it sits, around these parts.
i have heard of some selling for more, but haven't seen it.
I think you will be hard pressed to break even. $800 is a bit more than what it's worth in most parts of the country.
Welcome to the forum from a former born and bread New Yorker
do a completed auction search on gunbroker.
they very well may sell for more in your neck of the woods, and yes i have a couple of guns i am holding for a future trade instead of selling outright. makes sense to me.
With original box you could get $1000 for that gun.
