    Help with these 1908 .380 grips

    Hey guys.
    I got these original grips with a 1908 .380 I bought a while back.
    I just realized they are both different. They fit a 1908 perfectly.
    They are hard rubber (I believe)

    I am looking to sell them, and I am curious exactly what I have here and what they might be worth.
    The left grip has a small crack.

    Thank you!

    The left and right are from two different guns!

    Ya, that's what I figured.
    Hoping someone can tell me what each one is from. Different time periods? Different models?

    different periods:

    Colt Pistols and Revolvers for Firearms Collectors - Model 1903 .32 ACP & Model 1908 .380 ACP Pocket Hammerless Factory Grips

    I would suggest putting them in the classifieds section here. Anyone that has one broken panel of either type may be in need of a whole panel.
    A factory original pair of matching grips you will generally see for sale in the $75-$100 range from what I've seen.

    comma, you might want to contact LadyLuck, a forum member. She has the mate to the one with the encircled Colt and posted about it yesterday on the Colt Semiautos Forum.
