36XXX NM. it has never been fired, has original box and paperwork.
does anyone know the date it was made and what would be the approx. value.
According to R.L.Wilsons book, it looks like it was one of the last ones made, in 1970, just prior to the start of the 70 series. Book prices don't seem to mean much lately, as Colt prices have been all over the place. If it's truly NIB with all the trimmings, it's the kind the deep pocket boys have been going overboard to get, so Blokeys estimate is as good as any. Maybe even on the conservative side.
