Here's my nickel plated Colt 1908 .25 Automatic that I recently acquired from an estate sale. Was wondering if you guys could help me date it as well as establish a value based on its condition. I'm not sure how to distinguish between a gun in Excellent or Very Good or Good condition. I tried my best to take some photos but I found it near impossible to get a good shot without the glare bouncing off the nickle plating. I know some of the photos with the flash make the gun look like its covered with tiny scratches but that is really not the case. I tried to show the only eye sores which is some pitting located on the shell extractor and some on the grip safety. I certainly would appreciate any help I could get. Let me know if you need more information or if you have any tips on taking better photos without the glare. Thanks.
