Hi. I have a Colt Special Lady double action revolver (.38) that I purchased back in 1996. It's in pristine condition. I had it in its case in a box for several years and had only fired it probably less then 20 or 30 times at a firing range. Apparently from what I've read online, Colt only produced this revolver for a very short period of time, so I believe it to be considered relatively rare. I'm trying to decide whether to keep it or sell it. I'm going to request an Archive Letter from Colt for authentication, but I was wondering if any of you on this forum know how rare the Colt Special Lady is, or where I could find out how many Colt produced. I saw somewhere that only 250 or so were produced, but I have no clue if this is accurate. I've seen people online selling them for anywhere from $1,000 up to almost $6,000, so I have have no idea what would be a fair price for this gun. I'm assuming that the best case for me would be to find a collector who really wanted it, but for now, any information you could provide regarding the rarity and value of this gun would be greatly appreciated.
