    Sure look like ivory to me. The other I believe are for a pre 70 series Commander.

    The ivories are real, please put me first on the list to purchase them! The brown grips will bring at least $50 to $75 usually.

    Pretty sure those are real ivory!
    My biggest fear is when I die my wife will sell my guns for what I told her they cost.

    I would be interested in the pre-70 series grips if they haven't shrunk to the point where they won't on the grip screws (it is very common for them to shrink).. I would be interested at the prices that CJS57 suggested depending on condition.. A close to mint pair will bring $100.. Thanks...

    The ivory look real but heat up a needle and touch it to the back of the grip. If the hot needle goes into to the grip they are not ivory. You might also make sure they are not some of the Tru-Ivory ones, not sure how to test those.
