I鈥檝e no idea what the hammer price will be but I think someone is going to get an expensive lesson buying that.

Years ago turned down a NRA horrible $500 Super Match that had been polished to a rounded lump of ugly steel. So they sold it on GB for over $3000. Wish I would have taken it now.
The OP's referenced gun would look real nice if re-redone by Turnbull or similar to bright nickel. Once a gun is ruined by refinish you may as well do whatever you want. That gun has a nice King mirrored front sight so that could stay.

Letter says blue yet they tout nickel 馃ぃ
It's just a really not-so-clever attempt by the seller to dodge the issue. Note that the ad says, "Colt Factory authentication letter." All he's saying there is that it's a lettered pistol, not that the letter documents the current finish. Word games, that's all, and all too common on GunBroker.

If two shills are bidding it up, how does the seller make money?
The implication is that at least one is schilling for the seller.

A second could be running it up in tandem to establish a plurality of false enthusiasm. Kind of like goading an actual bidder into thinking that at least two others think the value is there. Of course, that's a risky business as the seller could get suck with it and have to pay the buyer's AND the seller's premium.

I call that scenario KARMA.
