    YEAH. It says it was and then it says it "may be" a re-nickel. Think I'll drive over and look at it. Its about 35 miles away.

    Looks less nickel-plated than chromed.

    My question is what is it worth in its re-finished and subsequently seriously worn condition

    The stampings are too crisp to be chrome plated.

    hearsedriver is right on the money at $1500 value. Maybe an extra $200 if you like the grips.

    I think I’ll take a look at it. Might be a diamond in the rough. I like the grips.
