I agree, I've seen it with other collectibles areas. It's the dream that noncollectable condition will somehow be "pulled up" along with all the good condition items. You see it every time someone posts a tired, bubba'd, or refinished Colt here. People start quoting "I'd pay up to One Hundred Million Dollars!" type comments. Or "It looks nice to me...I'd buy it" Talk is cheap. Throwing down hundreds or thousands on a refinished gun is not.
