    I am looking for information on a set of Colt .22 cal "lord and lady" derringers. They are not mine and I don't have a lot of information on them. I am researching for a friend. Here is a pic
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    The barrels are stamped .22 cal short Colt Hartford Ct USA the wooden grip serial # 50517der and the pearl grip serial # 50518der. From what I have found about the serial numbers, they were shipped from colt in 1976. Does anyone know what the value of these guns would be?
    Any help or information would be much appreciated
    NOTE: There is only one set. It is just two different pics of the same set

    These are reproductions based on the Colt No#3 derringer. Colt calls them the Model 4. If new and unhandled, the Lord and Lady is listed at 495 down to to 250 in 60 percent condition.Manufactured between 1959 and 1963.:)

    I have the same pair in mint condition with serial numbers 19LDR and 20LDR. Are they worth more with low serial numbers?

    No:) Also, sorry to say, I don't think they are worth what the Blue Book Lists. They are not made by Colt ( but by Butler Ind ), Made out of alloy, The Colts labeled guns did not have barrel liners and if shot the rifling would disappear. Sorry about that.
