COLT .455 BRITISH 1911
I have a very nice and pristine Colt .455. I have owned it for 30 years and never fired it and doubt whether it was ever fired.I have since found that it is not a RAF model, rather a Commercial model sold in 1915 to the British Army. All parts match up. See attached photographs. My concern is that American Collectors do not value these Pistol as much as Pistols with a more American provenance ? I also believe that should I export to America, the Pistol will be defaced with American markings that will devalue the value.
What is the real Retail value ?
