What Do you think it\'s worth?

I just bought a colt Tokyo Bay WWII commerative and was wondering on what it might be worth? I've looked in the blue book but there is no listing. It's a nickel 45 with a presentation case. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: What Do you think it\'s worth?

cammoguy............In your first sentence you stated the gun was a comemerative. A comemorative gun is difficult to price based on the fact that it takes a special buyer to give you the big bucks and they have to have been searching for 1 of that specific model. I personally have never even heared of that comemorative gun. I am fairly sure that if it's a colt gold cup it would be worth around 1000.00 if it is new in box and has all it's factory original papers and manual. That is a fair guess on my end I hope this helps some...............WIN-COLT

The gun was made in 1970 on the 25th anniversary of the end of WWII. It has all the papers, a velvet lined wooden case, a metal plaque set in the velvet and seven dummy cases. The gun has engraving for the commerative. The serial # is 1327PTO. Thanks for your help and the info.

Re: What Do you think it\'s worth?

The big problem with Colt commemoratives is that they made so many. There was a time when I swear Colt seemed to be making more commemoratives and so-called "special editions" than regular production items! As a result the value of their limited-issue items has drastically suffered. If your gun is absolutely mint and in the original box I'd say about $1000. I know that doesn't sound like much, but the fact is that few folks are after commemoratives these days.
