Re: Colt gold cup national match mark IV/series '70
Hi w6815......welcome to TFF.
Well.....this must be "Nice Colt 1911 Week" here at TFF. First DMoore's WWII Colt M1911A1, and now your Series 70 Gold Cup National Match.....one of my all-time favorites among 1911's.
According to the Blue Book of Gun Values, your Mk.IV, Series 70 Gold Cup Nat'l Match is worth:
98% - $895
95% - $700
90% - $575
80% - $500
IMO, this is the sweetest shooting "out-of-the-box" Colt Auto ever made....and the Series 70's are more highly prized than the later National Match models.
"Give me a Series 70 Gold Cup and a 6" Python, and I'll have the two best Colts ever made".......Me
BTW, if you'd care to post the Serial # (you can X-out the last two digits, if you like), we can give you the year of manufacture.
