    The name Goodwin in this regard is familiar. Maybe the 2nd or 3rd Python assembler?

    Was thinking "S.H. Rush", but not sure.

    I believe you replied to an inquiry I made a few weeks back with the exact same paperwork. I too have a 1956 Python with all the originals the same as this gun. Anyone interested in some more information regarding the paperwork can search for that post because some nice members offered their knowledge about these early Colt workers. I got mine at auction for a mere $4300 a little bit more than a year ago so I really appreciate you guys posting the link. My box is in a little rougher shape than that one but my serial number is a little bit more than 100 guns lower in roughly the same condition. I was shocked when mine hammered at that price because I always valued it between 5-6k. The market says I'm not wrong! This guy did a better job promoting the gun at this auction with very nice pictures and details. I know from experience that adds at lot of money at the hammer. Anyway, thanks for sharing this...makes my day to know how much $$$ I'd make if I ever decided to sell.
    1956 6" Royal Blue Colt Python .357
    1980 8" Nickel Colt Python .357
    1967 4" Royal Blue Colt Python .357
    1972 4" Nickel Colt Python .357

    Auctions are funny things. Sale prices can vary 25% or more, up or down. If you sell a lot, the "win some-lose some" of auctions averages out. If you sell only one guy, it can be an anxious ride seeing if that day you make what you had hoped. Some don't.

    Thanks for the link, the picture is the closest I will ever come to having a gun as nice as that one.
