    Once again, the value of selling at auction is proven. In addition to probable auction fever, the improper description taken from the always unreliable "Blue Book" may have helped the bid. The fact is that the .22 caliber Couriers far outnumber the .32 caliber Couriers, but the "Blue Book" says the reverse, and that misinformation was recited in the advertisement. The bidders apparently did not know the .22 caliber Couriers are the more-common ones.

    How does someone like me, a novice collector, know for sure what source of information is correct?

    That is a great philosophical question. By definition, as a novice, you don't. When you learn more about that, you are experienced. That is why novice collectors in any area make mistakes. Unfortunately, even experienced collectors can make mistakes because of long-touted incorrect information and even more experienced fakers. Once upon a time, it was books (some of which were not correct) and personal contact and mistakes over time. Now it is internet (a lot of which is incorrect) and mistakes instantly. While the internet does bring a wealth of information, it also brings a lot of questionable items to the market. Reading, asking those with experience and as few mistakes as you can manage is still the path to experience. The ColtForum is certainly one of the better resources for Colt collectors of all levels to do that. In the end, it is always Caveat Emptor. JMO

    Hi Joel and welcome to the forum.That is a real easy question to answer in three words JUST ASK HERE.By going thru these threads on a regular basis and asking every "newbie" question you can think of you will gain so much working knowlege.The members here are great, and you have a bunch of experts that share thier knowlege freely.I even shocked myself when a vendor had a obviously refinished Bankers Special @ a gun show trying to sell it as original. When he told me it was original I told him it was obviously refinished. He then asked me how I was able to be that certain and I said if you give me 5 minutes I will show you everything that points to it.I showed him point by point what was wrong.In the end he repriced the gun and said " I should have figured if a guy comes to a gun show wearing a Colt tee shirt he might know what he is talking about".
