I recently purchased a 1921 (by SN) vintage .32 "pocket pistol". The local gunshop from which I bought the pistol said the previous owner had it sent back to Colt for reconditioning. It looks and functions great although the markings are not as crisp as I would prefer. I have read that reconditioning of any kind lessens the value of a collectible firearm. Would this also be the case for a piece professionally redone by the manufacturer? Opinions?

Generally, the newer the refinish, the greater the drop in value. I picked the date 1980 as being 25 years ago. A factory refinish that was done pre or just post WWII will be worth more than a recent refinish.
