    Very nice! In the Blue Book 31st. edition they go from
    100% $2500
    95% $1900
    80%$1200
    70% $$1000 and so on. Someone will appear soon and tell you what condition it is in and also ask you about the idiot scratch!:D

    In my area of Eastern PA, I've seen worse condition examples selling in excess of 2 grand. This one sure looks to be in VG+ to low EXCELLENT condition - without a hands on. I'd say that the Blue Book values are pretty close to on the mark. At this time, with the "buyer caution" and poor economy in place, these old milsurp pieces seem to be holding their value very well. Seems that the "real" collectors are out there looking for bargains - but are willing to open their wallets for honest pieces. Too bad about the "idiot scratch" but that doesn't detract too much from the overall.
