    Pequeno Opportunity Coming My Way Maybe Need help

    I might have a chance at a Pequeno or Pequenos. I have not had a chance to see them yet, but was told each one letters. Found all available information I could on the forum. Some really good information by the way. My problem is, I have no idea about the value. Can't find any sales results either. Does anyone have links to sales results? Or maybe someone has kept some kind of records on what has sold. Any help will be appreciated.

    I own two Pequenos and have no real idea of value. I do not think there is a very big 'collecting community' for this Colt variant. Cam is certainly the forum expert, as Rick indicated.

    I'm not that informed on the Pequenos but I believe (from here on the Forum) that they're within a specific serial number and date range.

    From Gary Peer's book:
    Pequano models were produced in barrel lengths of 2", 2.25", 4", 5", and 6".
    The assembly and sale of the standard Police Positive and Police Positive B .32's from left over parts began in 1933 and continued through 1941 until the parts were exhausted.
    Serial numbers begin at approximately 226000 and run to about 237000. All Pequano models are designated as such in the shipping records.
    The rarest of the Pequano models (Police Positive B .32) is the 2" barreled version.

    The real question that needs to be answered is "What are they worth in US dollars?"

    I just looked at my lists. I have 3 lettered Pequeno. One is B marked and is NIB. I can't see that I paid much if any more than any other Police Positive of like condition.

    Of course , when I'm ready to sell they will be worth lots more than any common PP. Thanks, Joe
    A wise collector once told me that you never pay too much, it's just that you may buy a little early.

    Here is one that sold at RIA in September of 2018, so not too long ago. https://www.rockislandauction.com/de...olice-positive

    Also if I recall correctly I think Winston Wolfe had on on gunbroker not to long ago. I don't remember what it brought.

    Thanks Colt1860. I have the books, including Gary Peer's book. Other than Colt1860's link, I have not noticed sales results for these.
