    Have a pair of Colt Lady Deringer 22cal pistols in a display box. Gold Plated serial# 23259DER & 32360DER. Does anyone have information pertaining to these guns?

    Those "derringers" were made in the early 1970's as curios. I think all of that model were made as firing guns, but there may have been some non-firing ones. Either way, the double set with the guns and case in like new condition will bring only $500 or so even to the right person.

    They are neat to look at, but have no historical or real collector interest.

    Jim's right and a bit generous, $450 is the highest semi recent sale i can find

    This set sold for $340 plus fee's , mainly due to the centre marque being loose in the pic i think

    Some discerning folks said, when Colt was selling those commemoratives and souvenir guns that it marked the end of the company. A company making and selling real products for the modern world does not have to trade on its past or produce gimcracks and novelties. They were right.

    i'd rather my NAA Mini than these , i see em traded, small hand guns i have a interest in , but the commemorative never bring what they sell them for sadly , not for a long time

    the 50 year 1911 is 4-5 times what it sold for , a remington rifle one from the 60's too , the rest nice to own , but forget about value ..
