Just thought some of you might be interested in some prices at this show. Generally, Colts at a Mass. gun show are fairly sparse,
but I did run into some interesting ones, I think:
A pair of early Police Positives (in blue), both 4 in. Both about 98%. One in 32-20, the other 38. $1,000 for the pair.
A 357 4 in about 90-92% $850.
A .22 Diamondback 6 in. (nickle) about 85-90% $1,289.
A 3" blue Detective special from 1967 (see separate post w/ pics) $749.

I came home w/ nothing, but did seriously consider the PP's.
There seemed to be as much ammo as anyone could want, except for 22LR which was scarce.

What constitutes 85-90% on a nickel gun? Was the nickel flaking off?
I was referring to overall condition, not per cent finish. There were a number of scratches although overall appearence was pretty good. Nickle all appeared to be there.
