Some close ups of the pistol, slide stampings and box would be more helpful so members can give you a better estimate. I can zoom in but that distorts the images. Just a suggestion.

Using the on camera flash gives a bad view of the pistol. If you are where you can, step outside in bright shade to take your photos.

try like said above, outside ( but not in direct sunlight) or use a more "neutral" color back ground, no flash, use the 'macro' setting on your camera, and maybe put the lights ( lamps?) 0ff to the sides to get you cross lighting, NOTHING direct...nice gun,any "marking" of the slide stop ,above the trigger, folks hate to "see" any idiot marks from an improper 'takedown'..if they are going to pay the "big bucks" the gun has to be pretty nice, whats the shape of the box? target? manual,etc?? nice one around here are anywhere from $1200 to $1800 boxed...if "as new" (some like to call unfired, haha..) then they may push $2000........
it will be worth and sell for what someone who really needs, wants it and is willing to pay for it, we call it the "pucker factor";)
Good luck........

I paid $2500 for my 1966 NIB GCNM in March of 2012.







I keep track of current sales on the guns I own. Below is some recent pricing:

1968-$2900 2/2012
1965-$5050 2/2012 Included the outer cardboard sleeve
1968-$2580 4/2012
1962-$3495 2/2013
1968-$2860 2/2013
1966-$3100 3/2013

The above mentioned guns were as new with box and in most cases all documentation.
