If it is in good condition or better, I say yes. However, more detail is necessary to better evaluate. Is it an Offical Police (medium frame) in .38 Special, a Police Positive or Police Positive Special (small frames) in .32 NP, .32 Colt, .32-20, .38, .38 Special? Barrel length, blue or nickel, fixed or adjustable sights?

All off these determine if it is a good deal or a GREAT deal.

I am a S&W guy so I wasn't looking for a Colt and don't know a whole lot but here is what I remember.

The gun was pretty small, smaller then a old Smith M&P.
I'm pretty sure it was a .32 cal pistol. It was blued and looked to have at least 80-90 or better finish left. It was in A box but I'm not sure if it was the original box. It has those really small black rubber type colt grips. I think it was a 4" barrel.

I'm going back tomorrow so I'll check again.

Sounds like a Police Positive or PP Special; the Special is a longer frame version of the Police Positive. If it is chambered in .32 New Police (same as .32 S&W Long) or in .32-20, should make a great shooter. I'd give $100 for one in either caliber in that condition.

Well my memory wasn't so good, LOL.

It was a police positive in .38 and had the colt wood grips, not plastic. The condition was nice but there was some muzzle wear that went about an inch long done the barrel. No box.

Appro value?

As long as it chambers modern cartridges, like .38 S&W or .38 Special, and it locks up tight, a Colt revolver in good condition is worth $100, in my opinion.
