Ok guys, I know how collectible the early Pythons are these days, but I also know condition is everything for collector pieces. I've been playing around with a chance at #306. Everything is right and original. I would rate condition 95%, with some blueing loss around muzzle and cylinder, probably storage and holster wear. No box or papers. My friend has been out of the country for 6 weeks and wants to know if I want it, but his price has gone up since doing a little bit of Gunbroker research. Asking $3500. My opinion is that's about $500 more than its value, but I have also watched some go on gunbroker for much more, a couple recently to forum members. I really just need a few extra eyes to help me tilt the scale one way or the other.
