    My best Tulsa find LNIB Colt 1903 32's consecutive numbered pair

    To say I was excited when I found these is a major understatement. These pistols were shipped to Phil B. Bekeart Company, San Francisco, Ca. Bekeart was the West Coast dealer for Colt. They were shipped the week after Pearl Harbor, December 15, 1941. Apparently they sat in a drawer upon arrival. They are as near to new as anything can be that was made in 1941. Thought you might enjoy taking a look. Hope it is ok to use the link. Kept doing something wrong when trying to post pictures.

    Very Very nice!!! Are they for your personal collection or are they for sale?

    I would love to keep them, but they will be for sale before too long.

    mentallapse, CONGRATULATIONS! Are you willing to reveal either 1) How much you paid or 2) How much you plan to ask when you sell?

    The reason I ask is that I have an opportunity to purchase a brace (2) of LNIB fully factory-engraved, consecutive S/N Colt 1908 Vest Pocket Pistols in .25ACP, ivory stocks, tattered boxes and papers. The pistols are represented as being in immaculate condition, perhaps unfired outside the factory. I am trying to formulate a fair offer, and a maximum to offer. Your purchasing opportunity seems to parallel mine, so I am curious about pricing.

    I will not be flipping the Colts, if I acquire them.

    truly exquisite set of pistols with absolutely mint boxes-did the boxes have the oil soaked instruction manuals in them? could not tell from photos. guns look like they were just removed from a time capsule. the provenance of this pair of guns, the consecutive s/n's, condition, boxes, individual factory letters just cannot be matched - i would not sell if at all possible. this is another deal that you will regret if you let them go.

    even if you got top dollar the set is irreplaceable. jmho...

    Each box came with three pieces. The instructions, special instructions, and shooting suggestions.
